Sunrise and Sunset Experiences at Uluru

Sunrise and Sunset Experiences at Uluru

Mighty Uluru (Ayers Rock), steeped in Aboriginal legend and surrounded by vast desert landscapes, is one of Australia’s most iconic postcard images. Visiting the dramatic monolith in the heart of the Red Centre is always an unforgettable experience, but sunrise and sunset tours offer the most memorable views and colors. 

Sunrise at Uluru

The most popular way to experience an Uluru sunrise is on an early morning base walk. Stop to admire the ancient rock art at Mutitjulu Waterhole and tuck into a picnic breakfast under the glow of the newly risen sun. Alternatively, opt for an Uluru sunrise tour on camelback, or watch the sunrise looking out over Kata Tjuta (the Olgas), Walpa Gorge, and the Valley of the Winds in Uluru–Kata Tjuta National Park.

Sunset at Uluru

The Uluru sunset viewing area offers one of the most impressive views of the natural wonder, and a sunset tour is often combined with a traditional Aussie BBQ dinner. For the full experience, opt for a sunset camel ride, enjoy stargazing in the desert, then camp out in the Australian Outback so you can experience the sunrise as well.

Things to Know

  • Uluru is located in central Australia’s Northern Territory, 276 miles (445 kilometers) southwest of Alice Springs, about a 4.5-hour drive.

  • Throughout the year, sunrise and sunset times vary between 5:30am and 7am, and 6:45pm and 7:45pm, respectively. 

  • Sunrise or sunset tours from the Ayers Rock Resort typically last between three and five hours.

  • Uluru is located in an exposed area of the desert, so sunscreen, a hat, plenty of water, and comfortable shoes are a must. Be prepared for both high temperatures during the day and chilly weather at night. 

  • Most tours include hotel pickup from Ayers Rock Resort hotels; many tours include breakfast or dinner as well.
