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

  The Olgas at Sunset
by Hewer

The Olgas, known as Kata Tjuta to the traditional owners of the park, are located about 45 kilometers west of Uluru.

Sunset at the Olgas is definitely worthwhile if you are spending more than one night in the area (sadly, a one night stay is common). There are less people around so it is more low-key than sunset at Ayers Rock, which often involves more than one thousand people in two small areas.

The Olgas are less famous than their monolithic counterpart but certainly exude their own charm and the sunset there is spectacular.

Directions: Only a small number of guided tours include a sunset at the Olgas. Most tours include an afternoon tour there and then head to Uluru. You can hire a car or try one of the links below.
