Ayers Rock

The world's greatest monolith, Ayers Rock - or "Uluru" as the Aborigines call it - rises out of Australia's desert plains to a height of 1,026 feet. It is almost inconceivably ancient and intensely beautiful: as the sun passes through the sky, the rock catches its light and reflects it in shades from burgundy and crimson to indigo and slate gray. The Aborigines placed the rock high in their spiritual framework, and when you see this massive spectacle of nature, you'll understand why.

The Olgas are a jumble of massive boulders located near Uluru.

Sounds of Silence gives you the opportunity to watch a spectacular sunset from high atop a desert dune as you sip champagne and listen to the haunting sounds of a didgeridoo. After a gourmet barbecue, an astronomer will describe the magnificent constellations of the Southern Hemisphere.

Longitude 131 is one of Australia's most remarkable resorts, located in the heart of the Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park. This unrivaled campground set on an isolated sand dune, offers visitors a collection of safari-style luxury tents replete with stone floors, marvelous beds and state-of-the-art bathrooms. Within this spectacular natural setting, enjoy the sounds of the Outback, the beauty of the night sky, and the majesty of a sunset against Uluru. Learn about the land and the culture of the people who live on it.
