Overview



Luxurious, eco-sensitive and romantic, Longitude 131° lies at the gateway of the dual World Heritage listed wilderness of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Longitude 131° offers an exceptional Australian luxury outback experience for guests seeking an indulgent short break, the ultimate outback retreat or celebrating a special occasion in a unique and intimate environment.

With just 15 private luxury tents, experience unprecedented personal attention and serenity. A white dome roof and flowing fabric draped from the centre of each tent creates the illusion of camping. But unlike the early pioneers and explorers who visited the Australian outback, guests revel in sublime comfort at Longitude 131°. 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, guests enjoy reverse cycle air-conditioning, luxury interiors, Bose Sound System with iPod connectivity, mini-bar and tea and coffee making facilities and spectacular views of Uluru. Each elevated tent pays homage to an early Australian pioneer or explorer, with visual narratives adorning the walls that are central to the unique interior design.

Included in the Longitude 131° experience is accommodation; all meals; a selected range of premium alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages; an exceptional touring program designed exclusively for Longitude 131° guests; entrance to Uluru - Kata Tjuta National Park, and return Ayers Rock Airport transfers.

Longitude 131° offers the best of contemporary Australian cuisine, emphasising fresh produce and flavours. Dining can be either a private or a shared experience, where guests can meet and enjoy the company of other Longitude 131° 'outback' guests, whilst enjoying a daily changing menu of modern cuisine enhanced by indigenous flavours.

To start the day, enjoy a mouth-watering buffet or a la carte cooked breakfast. After a morning of touring, return to Longitude 131° to enjoy a gourmet lunch or tasting plates of delicious seasonal produce.
In the evening, relax over pre-dinner drinks and canapés served in the Dune House and then enjoy a 3-course dinner with chosen wines.

Dining under the stars at Table 131° is an unforgettable experience not to be missed. Dine out on sumptuous outback fare and discover the wonders of the southern night sky. The evening commences with stunning 360° views of Uluru and Kata Tjuta from a selected dune top whilst enjoying sunset drinks and canapés followed by a 3-course dinner served under the stars and complemented with fine Australian wines. During dinner a Star Talker will highlight the galaxy of stars overhead. Return to the Dune House for after dinner drinks. All meals, alcoholic and non-alcoholic are included. Romantic private dining can also be arranged on the Dune Top, by the poolside or in guest rooms. Special dietary requirements or food preferences can be catered for.

At Longitude 131°, guests take the road less traveled, sharing exclusive and authentic Australian outback experiences with just a few others. Together, guests explore the living and cultural landscapes of Uluru and Kata Tjuta on an exceptional Longitude 131° private touring program, designed exclusively for guests and included in the luxury wilderness experience at Longitude 131. Experience Australia's heartland in the company of a personal guide and travel in a luxury 4WD on a personal tour or in the company of a select few...

On the Uluru Sunrise Walk, view the remarkable changing colours of the vast desert landscape and the spectacular sight of Uluru and Kata Tjuta at dawn. As day breaks, learn about the history of this ancient land, including the plights of early explorers and their interactions with Anangu, the traditional owners of the awe-inspiring wilderness.
The Kata Tjuta & Walpa Gorge tour takes in Kata Tjuta, also known as the Olgas, comprising 36 majestic domes. Along the way, visit the Kata Tjuta Viewing Area for a photo opportunity and from there continue on to Walpa Gorge, where the natural history of Kata Tjuta is explained in great detail.

Uluru & Kantju Gorge Sunset is experienced on a drive around Uluru with an expert guide who explains the World Heritage values, the geology and the tourism history of the region. Walk along the Mala Walk from the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park Cultural Centre and as day transforms into night, enter Kantju Gorge to witness the gorge walls ablaze with the light of the setting sun.
