"Ayers Rock Sunset" Top 5 Page for this destination Uluru National Park (Ayers Rock) Things to Do Tip by Hewer

  Ayers Rock, 30 minutes before sunset
by Hewer

Viewing the sunset at Ayers Rock is the most popular activity for visitors to the region.

There are two viewing areas, one for cars and small vans and one for buses. The viewing area for cars is a little closer.

Most people arrive about thirty minutes prior to sunset. Try to arrive early so that you can get a good vantage point.

Finally, don`t be disappointed if there is no dazzling change of colours. I lived at Ayers Rock for three years and I only saw about ten or so `postcard` sunsets. I took this photograph in September, 1997 with a disposable camera. I wish I'd had decent equipment!

The first fine day after some rainfall usually has a good sunset. Enjoy!
