Guests looking to explore more of the outback, or who have a special interest to pursue can choose from a selection of bespoke experiences in addition to their signature Longitude 131° itinerary. Activities may be relaxed and intimate, like romantic private dining or sunset viewing options to more energetic pursuits like guided hikes, which include the classic Uluru base walk and rewarding Valley of the Winds circuit at Kata Tjuta. There are day trips to Kings Canyon or an exclusive visit to the remote art community at Ernabella and private arrival and departure tour options, most thrillingly via helicopter.
Longitude 131° also partners with outback adventure operators for specialist ventures, ranging from ‘bush tucker’ tours to day trips to Cave Hill, a renowned rock art site. Scenic flights over Uluru, Kata Tjuta and beyond to Mount Conner, the region’s ‘other’ distinctive monolith offer an exhilarating aerial perspective of the outback, revered as a ‘must do’ by those in the know.
Adventure seekers can jump on a Harley-Davidson for an unforgettable ride around Uluru, join a camel train for a mesmeric encounter of the outback at dusk in the style of the western pioneers, whilst others take to mountain bikes for a more down-to-earth adventure. Possibilities to explore Australia’s outback are as vast as its horizons; the team at Longitude 131° will choreograph each guest’s stay to create a highly tailored, personal experience of Uluru-Kata Tjuta and beyond and always in stylish comfort.
