Kings Creek Station

Luritja Rd., Kings Canyon, Northern Territory, Australia

Although not everyone falls in love with this rustic accommodation on a working cattle station, it is the most affordable option close to Kings Canyon. At 36 km (22 miles) from the deep crevasse, roofed canvas cabins trace a line along the red soil, surrounded by powered camping sites (A$23 per person). The owners, Ian and Lyn Conway, are widely respected for their support of indigenous education, raising thousands of dollars to send far-flung children to school. They're also the largest exporters of wild camels in Australia. On site is a minimart, a café, and a service station. They run quad biking, chopper flights, and camel rides from the property.
