Uluru named best place to watch the sunset
Forget the Greek Island of Santorini or America’s iconic Grand Canyon, Uluru in our very own Red Centre has taken out top billing as the best place in the world to watch the sun go down.
This is according to a recent survey collected by the people at online travel services website Bounce.
After examining things like light pollution levels, expert travel recommendations and Instagram data, Bounce have come through with a list of the world’s ten best sunset destinations – and Uluru has been ranked number one.
Bearing witness to the colossal rock turn countless shades of deep orange, red, pink, purple and blue throughout the duration of the sun’s descent is truly mind-boggling, and we aren’t surprised that this very special place has been ranked number one when it comes to sunset travel destinations.
And you can see what all the fuss in about on one of our Red Centre pack-free walking holidays! We have three tours to choose from that include exploring the world’s most famous rock.
Our 5-day Walk the Red Centre tour travels through the heart of Australia on an unforgettable journey that combines some of the best walks and natural wonders that Central Australia has to offer. Walk four great walks including Kings Canyon Giles Track and Kings Canyon Rim walk as well as a walk around world-famous Uluru and through the stunning Kata Tjuta.
