This was 1 of the highlights of our trip to Urulu & Alice Springs. The rim walk was amazing to say the least. Our guides were full of info & easy to talk to - Jess & Nick. Had a thoroughly enjoyable long day. Watching the sunrise would have been a bonus & also broken up the long drive before breaky.

It was lovely to be walking amongst the lights and in the desert at that time of the day. It was quiet and magical. Our tour guide was lovely.

Great view of the night sky and stars before sunrise. The Field of Lights itself is a spectacular sight to behold.

Awesome experience watching the sunset at Uluru, plus plenty of nibblies and drinks provided by the tour oerator

It was just amazing coming up over the hill and there was the field of lights. Absolutely % must see.
