Thanks to heavy rain, onlookers were treated to a rare event at Uluṟu.

Over the 20th and 22nd of March, Uluṟu received more than 46 mm of rain, making for a spectacular scene.

“The unique and extraordinary weather event saw tourists and locals alike flocking to the National Park to get a glimpse of the full flowing waterfalls,” Uluṟu-Kata Tjuṯa National Park said. “As the temperature drops and a fog encompasses Uluṟu, the arid desert explodes with colour and life.”

According to the National Park rainwater on the rock’s surface causes it to change colour. “From dark burgundy to shining silver and even black, every side of Uluru takes a different shade, making this spectacle a photographer’s delight.”
