Outback Life & Beyond

Australia > Northern Territory > Ayers Rock/Uluru > Darwin 

7 Days, 6 Nights

Your Australian vacation journey commences in the heart of Australia, Uluru. Longitude 131° offers an essential experience of Australia’s spiritual heartland, a true sense of stillness and beauty in the desert landscape, rich in culture, heritage, and history.
Enjoy two-nights in a safari-style tented pavilions, created for the modern traveler to float over the rust-red dunes. Offering unparalleled views of Uluru’s changing lights play out from the end of the bed, or on balconies from the warmth of a cozy swag unfurled in the cool night air. Central to a stay is discovery of Uluru-Kata Tjuta and connection with the ancient creation stories of the land’s Traditional Custodians, the Anangu, explored on the Lodge’s personally guided adventures.
Journey to Alice Springs to join one of the world’s great rail journeys, the Ghan, as it travels from the Red Centre of Australia across the outback arriving at Darwin the following night. You’ll enjoy a special night on board with fine dining and wines in the lounge before falling asleep to the sounds of the track. Day two includes an off-train excursion to Nitmiluk Gorge before the final leg from Katherine to Darwin.
Overnight in Darwin before traveling south to Finniss River Lodge, an exciting and experiential luxury lodge built alongside the vast coastal floodplains of the Top End. Owned and operated by third-generation pastoralists, this remarkable property offers a profound sense of isolation within a diversity of stunning landscapes, all while being easily accessible from Darwin.
The lodge will offer a generous respite after days of adventuring from the Red Centre to the Top End. Enjoy locally prepared meals in the restaurant and a refreshing drink in the bar. The range of activities available is flexible and personalized to your interests, adapting with the feeling of each day, while personalized charter options can be organized in advance. Two shared on-property activities are included each day, as a morning and afternoon experience curated to the day.
Your Outback Life and Beyond vacation concludes with a return transfer to Darwin.
