This is one of the best the places to watch the colours change at Uluru during the dramatic sunset.
You can also visit this area at sunrise and capture Uluru silhouetted against the dawn.
Uluṟu-Kata Tjuṯa National Park is Aṉangu land. Visitors require a park pass. Your park pass helps provide the visitor facilities you enjoy and preserves the World Heritage, environment and cultural sites. Part of the fee goes back to Aṉangu traditional owners to support the community.
This area can be accessed by cars only – buses use the Bus Sunset and Dune Walk Viewing area.
