When you think of Australia’s outback, you probably imagine tumbleweeds and sweaty bushwalks, so get ready to have your world flipped! Here’s a glamourous side of the NT you’ve never seen before.
If you’re visiting Uluru, indulge in a booking at Longitude 131. No expense was spared when this deluxe eco-camping hotel was created. The result is a truly unique way to experience Uluru. Guests have uninterrupted views of the mighty Uluru from their rooms where modern and classic furnishings meet Indigenous art and native textures. Of course, a visit to Uluru would be incomplete without dining under the stars and watching traditional dances at the world famous Table 131.
Explore Uluru in the morning; relax with a massage and facial in the afternoon. Indulge in a little pampering at Red Ochre Spa, located within Sails in the Desert Hotel at Ayers Rock Resort. Why? Because you can, that’s why.
Nothing compares to seeing the Northern Territory via the Ghan Railway. There’s an old-world luxury to be found on this historic train. It winds its way from Adelaide, through the Red Centre and to the tropical north. You’ll see the MacDonnell Ranges and the domes of Kata Tjuta/The Olgas before heading north to the stunning Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge) and finishing in Darwin.
When you’re stopping through Alice Springs on the Ghan, check out Lasseters. Set at the base of the spectacular West MacDonnell Ranges, Lasseters has 4.5 star suites, a resort-style pool, day spa, four restaurants, four bars and access to Alice’s golf course just next door. If you feel the need to ever leave this place, they also provide complimentary bikes to explore Alice Springs. And let’s be real – that bike ride will be a good excuse for a massage!
