Longitude 131°
Astronomy

Astronomy

The Australian Outback is perhaps one of the best places to explore the galaxy of stars in the night sky. The low humidity and minimal unnatural light in the Red Centre provide perfect conditions for heavenly views of the wide expanse above, free from pollution and ablaze with countless stars.

Table 131°, exclusive to Longitude guests, is one of the world’s most remarkable dining experiences, featuring alfresco dining with local flavours in a private desert setting under the canopy of glittering stars and accompanied by an interpretive “star-talk”.

After dinner, settle back and listen to the Lodge’s resident astronomer decode the southern night sky.  Locate the Southern Cross, the signs of the zodiac and the Milky Way, all clearly visible due to the exceptional clarity of the atmosphere.  Learn the significance of the stars and planets in the Aboriginal stories of creation, such as The Pleiades or Seven Sisters story, part of an Aboriginal songline that traverses the breadth of the continent, from the east to west coast of Australia.

Longitude 131° offers a transcendent experience of discovery

Timeless and enriching, Longitude 131° overlooks the dual World Heritage listed wilderness of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.
