See Uluru at sunrise and sunset

The iconic red monolith that is Uluru is undoubtedly the region's most famous landmark and is a go-to for almost every visitor. But to see the giant rock at its most spectacular, witnessing a sunset and sunrise is pretty much essential. Watching the colours change over the otherworldly landscape is a breathtaking experience and there are a couple of designated platform viewing areas set into the sand dunes, offering views of both Uluru and Kata Tjuta.
