Uluru is known to change colors at sunset and sunrise, and is a breathtaking view both at dusk and dawn.
If you don’t want to drive there through the Australian outback, the nearest airport to Uluru is located in Alice Spring, and from there, it’s a 5 hour drive to Ayers Rock.
Next to Ayers Rock, you can find another famous monument called the Olgas (Kata Tjuta). The Olgas is a group of domed rock formations, and are an impressive structure that unfortunately is being shadowed by its famous brother, Ayers Rock, but is well worth your visit if you are in the area.
