Group Tour: Hues of Uluṟu at Longitude 131
Indulge in the Red Center Experience at the exclusive Longitude 131, nestled within the spiritual heart of Australia. Begin your first day with a welcome drink before you settle in the wilderness glamping accommodations with their inviting aboriginal dot paintings. Late afternoon, head into the Uluṟu-Kata Tjuṯa National Park, on a scenic drive to reach Ayers Rock. Listen to creation stories and understand the significance of this ancient rock as you browse aboriginal artifacts at the cultural center. Next, head to the twilight viewing area, where sipping on a glass of bubbly, you can witness a magnificent sunset and marvel at the landscape. Admire the Field of Light – a stunning solar-powered light installation by renowned artist Bruce Munro. See thousands of stems topped with frosted glass spheres illuminating the desert landscape against Uluru’s silhouette. Later, gather at the atmospheric outdoor dining area called Table 131, amid nocturnal outback sounds. Savor a sumptuous spread of Australian specialties under the stars, while native performers entertain with song and dance. Before retiring for the night, learn about the southern constellations, as the resident astronomer shares secrets of the skies! During the first half of day two, get up close with Kata Tjuṯa’s sacred red domes, which offer a beautiful backdrop for your excursion. Accompanied by an aboriginal guide, get an insight into its natural history and local legends, as you journey through Walpa Gorge. In the afternoon, arrive at the base of Uluṟu for a leisurely Mala Walk, and learn about the history and lifestyle of these Aṉangu ancestors. Continuing further along the Kantju Gorge, visit ancient kitchen caves adorned with rock art, where the Mala people prepared their meals. As evening falls, soak in the sunset along with drinks and canapes, while Uluṟu displays its glorious colors. Back at camp, enjoy a Dune House dinner that features a seasonal menu of desert-inspired dishes including foraged herbs and bush ingredients, all complemented by Australian wines. On the last day, immerse yourselves further into Aṉangu living culture, as you visit the sacred site of Mutitjulu waterhole. Listen to Tjukurpa – a local creation of dreaming stories and mythological incidents that are believed to have shaped Uluṟu’s landscape. Past a section of bush fruits and vegetables, and river red gum trees, embrace the spiritual atmosphere of this dramatic landmark. Returning to camp, have breakfast, and recount memories here as you bid farewell.
