Overview – Longitude 131°

Awaken to the sight of majestic Uluru at Longitude 131°, the closest accommodation to Australia’s best known geographical formation.

The Red Centre is Australia’s cultural and geographical heart, containing the world’s most recognisable sandstone monolith – Uluru – and the assortment of imposing red mounds known as Kata Tjuta or The Olgas. Positioned in the shadow of Uluru, ultra-luxurious Longitude 131° is the ideal location to see these magical sacred sites and to absorb the isolation of the rugged outback.

Cleverly built to remain warm in winter and cool in summer, the property’s 15 stylish tents have floor to ceiling windows at the foot of the bed, so the first thing you’ll see when you awaken is Uluru. While décor is a quirky mix of modern minimalist and turn-of-the-century Australian explorer with traditional Aboriginal art thrown in, room amenities are purely 21st century. Flick a switch to raise the blinds, or slide the shower wall panel so you can take in the changing moods of Uluru while you bathe beneath the rain shower.

Dune House, at the middle of camp, contains a vast collection of books, maps and artefacts, providing guests the opportunity to learn about the area. The adjacent swimming pool and terrace form the ultimate setting for a drink as the sun sets over the ochre landscape.

Dining is beneath the dramatic Dune House canopy or outdoors, at Table 131°. Cuisine is contemporary Australian, infused with indigenous flavours. A private poolside meal or romantic dinner-for-two beneath the stars can also be arranged (weather permitting, at additional cost).

A range of exceptional excursions can be organised during your stay. A typical day might start with a meander through spectacular Walpa Gorge before stopping at the Cultural Centre, where informative, interactive displays provide insight into the meaning of Uluru and Kata Tjuta. Catch sunset over Uluru in the evening, chilled beverage and canape in hand – the ultimate Red Centre experience!

Longitude 131° welcomes children aged 10 years and over.
