Breakfast Left


The day often starts pre-dawn at Longitude 131°, with tours of Uluru and Kata Tjuta departing as the sun lights the horizon. Best to be prepared for the adventures ahead, premium espresso and fine leaf tea awaits. A grazing table of fresh-cooked pastries, fruits and cold meats tempts, while an a la carte menu features hot breakfast items from eggs cooked as preferred, smoked salmon served with crispy potato rosti and fluffy blueberry pancakes.

Lunch Right


After a morning exploring the Red Centre, lunch is served in the cool of the Dune House or outdoors on the terrace overlooking Uluru. Guests can enjoy a starter and main meal, with fresh seafood, meats and salads a highlight. Enjoy a paired wine or and finish with dessert and coffee. Lunch is the perfect precursor to a relaxed afternoon by the pool, on the Dune Top or in the comfort of a luxury tent.

Dining Under the Stars Right

Dining under the stars

The southern skies over Uluru-Kata Tjuta are a glittering kaleidoscope of stars, with cool, clear nights and an absence of manufactured lights from cities or nearby dwellings creating a stargazer’s paradise. Table 131° is renowned around the world as an iconic outdoor dining experience, with a menu prepared on a remote dune top and served under a blanket of stars. The feeling of being in a natural theatre is heightened by the chefs who work by tourchlight to present four sumptuous courses.

Watering holes

The dry and mostly warm Red Centre climate inspires the need for an icy cold beverage. Happily Longitude 131° has a number of ‘watering holes’ both indoors and out where guests can help themselves to a drink, or – better still – ask a friendly staff member to fix a refreshing cocktail.

Dune House bar

Dune House bar

Lined with nearly 500 unique spinifex tiles each hand designed by the ladies at Ernabella Arts Community, the Dune House bar is a cool retreat. The well-stocked bar features a range of premium spirits – including baillies 9 gin distilled exclusively for the lodges to a secret Kangaroo Island recipe – as well as an excellent selection of wines and local craft beers. Snacks are available and depending on the mood guests sit up at the bar to watch the action or settle into luxurious club-style armchairs.

Dune Top Bar

Set high on a platform above the red sands of the desert, the Dune Top bar offers the chance to relax in the quiet of the vast outback landscape. The outdoor lounge offers panoramic views that sweep from Uluru to Kata Tjuta, while an outdoor bar features a help-yourself fridge stocked with cool Australian white and rose wines and a swag of craft beers. Outdoor loungers and a plunge spa are the perfect spot to enjoy a refreshing beverage while drinking in the views.

Our Chef

With his most recent posting at Likuliku Lagoon Resort in Fiji, Executive Chef Ryan Ward brings a passion for fresh, seasonal produce and contemporary Australian cuisine to the menu at Longitude 131°. Working with a philosophy of bringing Australia’s finest premium produce to the Red Centre, Ryan uses local bush ingredients and traditional Indigenous techniques to create unique taste of Australia served, with a view to Uluru.

A daily approach to designing each menu – where local and regional ingredients are the stars – is essential to the Baillie Lodges Culinary Philosophy which steers the dining experience across all the lodges. Ryan is a strong believer in focusing on the origin of the ingredient and takes inspiration from the culture, customs and tradition to create dishes that have a sense of place. The result is a truly remote and extraordinary dining experience.
