"Sunset" is the tourist thing to do in Uluru. Every tourist within 150km must have made it there. The big tour buses had their tables set up with white tablecloths, elegant wine flutes, and a selection of tasty nibbles. We had our backpacker crackers and dip on the Eskie ;-) We were supposed to have some bubbly too, but the driver carrying our glasses was running late. (Ne'er mind: those who wanted it had it for dinner later!)
I guess what amazed me most about the sunset was how quickly it seemed to happen. One minute, there was a golden glow on Uluru, and the next it seemed that the colour had all drained from it.
