Sunset at Uluru

posted in: Northern Territory

On the drive into Yulara you are able to see Uluru from a distance.  There are some rolling hills and you can just get a glimpse in between.  Because of all these rolling hills you really can’t get a proper view of it unless you go to a lookout at the campsite.  The first really good view of Uluru is after you enter the national park.
