No expense has been spared in ensuring your stay with us is a special experience which nurtures your body, stimulates your mind and liberates your spirit.

The flick of a bedside switch is all it takes to raise the blinds and watch the spectacular moods of Uluru at sunrise. Meticulously designed to remain cool in summer and warm in winter, you have reverse cycle air-conditioning for complete control over your personal climate.

Longitude 131 offers the best of contemporary Australian cuisine, emphasising fresh, quality produce to mirror the tranquil, spiritual surrounds. Communal dining in the Dune allows guests the chance to meet their fellow 'campers' and exchange stories of their desert encounters.

Breakfast features a mouth watering selection from the continental buffet or an a la carte menu. At lunch, guests choose from a buffet of cold meats complimented by an array of homemade gourmet salads. Dinner comprises a three-course set menu, which changes daily and is based on the fusion of modern Australian cooking methods with fresh, Australian produce enhanced by indigenous flavours and a hint of International flavours. Dine out on sumptuous outback fare and discover the wonders of the southern night sky. Experience stunning 360 views of Uluru and Kata Tjuta while enjoying pre-dinner champagne and canaps. Then feast on three delicious courses complemented with the finest Australian wines. This popular dining experience is part of an exceptional touring program designed exclusively for guests and is included in the tariff.

Year Round

Australia is an all-year-round destination, but during the summer, December to February, it is hot in Western Australia, Northern Territory and Queensland. At the Great Barrier Reef, most rain falls in January and February. In northern Queensland and parts of the Northern Territory, roads may flood during the 'green' season, January to March. The ski season takes place during June to October in New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania. Australia's seasons are the opposite of those of the Northern Hemisphere.

Local Info

Rising from the broad desert plain in the deep centre of Australia, Uluru/Ayers Rock is Australia's most recognisable natural icon. The famous sandstone monolith stands 348 metres high and, like an iceberg, has most of its bulk below the surface. It is located 440 kilometres south-west of Alice Springs in the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. 40 kilometres to the west of Uluru/Ayers Rock is Kata Tjuta, also known as The Olgas. This massive pile of rock domes dates back 500 million years. Both Uluru and Kata Tjuta have great cultural significance for the Anangu traditional landowners, who lead walking tours that inform about the local flora and fauna, bush foods and the Aboriginal Dreamtime stories of the area. Watarrka National Park, encompassing Kings Canyon, lies 300 kilometres to the north-east of Uluru and 310 kilometres west of Alice Springs. Kings Canyon has 300-metre-high sandstone walls, walking trails, palm-filled crevices and views across the desert.
