Jim's Place

This roadhouse south of Alice Springs at Stuart Well run by Jim and Mardi Cotterill. Jim's family cut the first road into Kings Canyon themselves and opened it to tourism in the early 1960s. A monument to his father is at the base of the walk.

This new place has accommodation, meals, souvenirs, bar and drinks and a history of the development of the canyon on the walls. It is also where you will find the famous singing, piano playing dingo, 'Dinky'.

The old Dodge Weapons Carrier used to tow the drag to cut the road is at the front of the roadhouse.
