Mount Connor at this time was beautiful, further, birds’ songs were unforgettable as luckily there was no other visitors except for us, which made very quiet condition. It was so nice to hear their songs with sunrise.

Then we directly went back to Uluru to see Sunset at Sunrise view point where we saw the sunrise yesterday morning.

The reason why we came to Sunrise view point was that I wanted to feel how Uluru is viewing the sunset over Kata-Tjuta.

Beautiful artwork by artist Bruce Munro. I didn’t think that we would look at such art in the centre of Australia. It is a different experience from those which can be felt during bush walk.


This event is available up to the end of Mar-2017 (from 35AUD/Adult).
