Mudgee to Darwin Day 14 Kings Canyon and Kings Creek Station

It is so nice to be out of the caravan park environment, we prefer to bush camp or stay at station campgrounds and Kings Creek is just perfect for us. We are camped up the back with no close neighbours, nice and quiet, but with the confidence of hot showers and flushing loos.

Today we drove to Kings Canyon and did the rim walk, took about 3 hours. There is a big steep climb up a few thousand stairs to start with, after that it is up and down over rocks and rock shelves for about 6km. Stunning scenery, and we were glad to do it early in the day, the wind was actually quite chilly and strong and we kept our jumpers on for the whole walk. Then we came back to Kings Creek for lunch at camp , and in the afternoon went quad biking around the station, this was lots of fun, and we got to see part of the station, some cattle yards, the remote camp setup, plus some petroglyphs (rock carvings) that are between 14,000 and 22,000 years old. They show carvings of animal tracks, meeting places and waterholes, and were used by the elders to teach the young people how to track and other skills. By the time we got back to camp the sun had set and it was getting very cold, we were very glad the fire was ready to light, spent a lovely evening by the campfire.
