Whilst it’s tempting to take in the beauty of Uluru and Kata Tjuta from the comfort of your luxury tent’s daybed or from the lounge chair by the lodge plunge pool – with a glass of wine or ‘outback margarita’ in hand – guests at Longitude 131° can get up close and personal with the World Heritage-listed icons on an itinerary of experiences which offer a more personal connection with the region’s natural attractions.

According to guests, these signature adventures offered at Longitude 131° give meaning and a new perspective to their experience of Australia’s Red Centre. Taking ‘the road less travelled’ with excursions timed to coincide with quieter visiting periods, days are spent in the style of a desert safari, setting out in the cool early mornings and late afternoons to explore the living natural and cultural landscapes of Uluru and Kata Tjuta.

Longitude 131°’s knowledgeable resident guides lead each tour, making every outback adventure a memorable experience.  Guides offer a fascinating commentary for guests, allowing a deeper understanding of the region and its history. It’s one thing to admire Uluru from a distance, but quite another to start to understand the local indigenous Anangu people and their creation stories or to witness the first light against one of Kata Tjuta’s thirty-six mighty domes and learn of the cultural significance of the mystical rock formations.
