The Deal

Kings Canyon is sometimes referred to as the "little brother" of Uluru, located a few hours to its south. But that's not quite doing it justice -- the 100-metre-deep chasm is "one of the most spectacular sights in central Australia," according to Lonely Planet.

Finding real hotel accommodation in the area can be a challenge, since many places offer tents or backpacker dorms. But Kings Canyon Resort has real, air-conditioned rooms with ensuite bathrooms. Three-night stays now cost the same as two, reducing the original cost by over $100 per night.

Watarrka National Park is a great jumping-off point for an outback adventure: You could hike along the clifftops, learn about bush medicine from an aboriginal guide or dine beneath the stars of a desert sky. The hotel can even organize a private helicopter tour over the canyon itself. 

What’s available: Standard Rooms for two guests are $663 for three nights (previously $996).

Upgrade option: Deluxe Rooms are $780 for three nights (previously $1170). Unlike Standard Rooms, these come with spa bathtubs and breakfast for two.

Travel dates: Most days through June. Prices go up in July and October, but the "three for two" promotion still applies.

Available until sold out.
