Luxurious, eco-sensitive and romantic, Longitude 131 offers immersion in the wilderness of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, complete with 5 star luxury and private views of the sun rising and setting over Uluru (Ayers Rock).

In the crisp, white linen of a king-sized bed you find the serene, silent sleep of the desert. Above the sweeping canopy of your palatial tent floats a greater canopy, endless and sparkling. Constellations brimming with Anangu, (local Aboriginal people), tales and stories. You dream the rich dreams found only in the heart of sacred, powerful places.

As one of only 30 guests at Longitude 131, you awake to your own private view of the sun rising over Uluru (Ayers Rock). Reflecting countless colours, Uluru drenches you with its fabled light. The walls of your tent are a visual narrative, telling of the discoveries made by an early outback pioneer.

This award-winning luxury wilderness camp in Australia's Red Centre has achieved new heights in ecotourism the world over. Longitude 131 is a deluxe camping experience like no other and set atop an isolated sand dune close to the border of the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.

As far from anywhere else as you can be. As close as possible to serenity. Rejuvenation for the body. Stimulation for the mind. Liberation for the spirit.

Children 12 years and under are not catered for at Longitude 131.

DINING

In the evening savour dishes from a new, daily menu which fuses modern Australian cuisine and indigenous flavours with a hint of international influences. The evening also offers up experiences to last a lifetime. Dine out under the spectacular desert night sky at Table 131, with the sounds of the Didgeridoo in the background, and the beautiful dusk desert sky fading from vibrant pinks/red to a starlit sky, Longitude 131's resident storyteller shares stories from the past at Tales by Firelight.

 

Luxury Tented Accommodation

At Longitude 131 you will find unprecedented solitude and serenity. Your luxurious tent is a private place to rest, relax and refresh. No expense has been spared in ensuring your stay with us is a special experience which nurtures your body, stimulates your mind and liberates your spirit.

A white dome roof and flowing fabric draped from the centre create the illusion of camping. But unlike the early pioneers and explorers, guests revel in sublime comfort. 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, you have reverse cycle air-conditioning for complete control over your personal climate.

Each elevated tent pays homage to an early Australian pioneer or explorer . Visual narratives adorn the walls and are central to the unique interior design.
