Ayers Rock Sunset View

Point Of Interest

This is the place to take the quintessential Uluru photo. As the sun sinks behind you, the rock transforms from pinkish hues to a fluorescent orange and deep shades of red. The sky also displays a varied palette of colours, with the rock surrounded by delicate baby blues and bright pinks. If you visit during the full moon, you are likely to see the moon rising next to Uluru around sunset. Alternatively, you can visit this area at dawn to capture the rock silhouetted against the rising sun. To capture an uninterrupted shot of Uluru, drive to the very end of the carpark and put your tripod near the fence in the wide sandy area (youll want to arrive early to get a good spot). This is also the perfect place to film a sunset time-lapse video. Pets are not permitted.

What a gorgeous spot!! Get here about 90 mins prior and sit and savour the beauty of the rock as the sunsets, it almost speaks to you as the light changes. There are no facilities so use the loo before you head down. I recommend purchasing artwork here or twin square (avoid inflated prices at gallery) met the artist and have a chat. Enjoyed it so much we did two nights in a row.



Great sunset spot, heaps of bays but make sure to get down a bit earlier to secure a good spot. If out of the car, remember to keep it locked and there was some people walking around the cars on the second night we went to watch the sunset Follow our adventures on Instagram and YouTube @the_cheesy_adventurers



Beautiful spot to watch the sunset. We took down our dinner and chairs and made the most of this amazing view!! Plenty of car parking and a few low picnic tables to sit and enjoy. Loved watching the colours change as the sun set, truly spectacular!!
