Longitude 131, Yulara, NT
Looking for a unique way to connect with one of Australia's most spectacular natural wonders? Uluru has a range of new incentive offerings and Aboriginal culture activities to make your next incentive trip to 'The Red Centre' even more memorable.
Field of Light extends its season until 2020
Imagine a field of 50,000 lights that change colour as the sun sets over one of the natural wonders of the world.
The Field of Light is an immersive art installation by renowned British artist Bruce Munro. The inspiration for this large-scale installation was the way that Munro felt the first time he saw Ayers Rock (now known by its traditional Aboriginal name, Uluru) in the 1970s.
The solar powered installation has proven so popular that Voyages Indigenous Tourism have decided to extend the show until 31 December, 2020.
Between 22 October and 24 March each year, guests can also enjoy Mayu Wiru, meaning ‘beautiful flavour’ in local Pitjantjatjara. This premium experience for a maximum of 16 guests combines an exceptional gourmet menu celebrating the ancient flavours of Indigenous Australia with a private escorted tour through Field of Light.
Ayers Rock Resort refurbishment
Beyond the art installation, Ayers Rock Resort has recently completed a full refurbishment of all of its accommodation rooms and public areas. From the 5-Star Sails in the Desert with 228 rooms, to the 6-Star Longitude 131 with its all-inclusive service and 15 elevated pavilions with front row views over Uluru, there are plenty of high-end accommodation options to suit incentive groups.
This accommodation overhaul also includes the addition of the Uluru Meeting Place. The Meeting Place has two large ballrooms that fit 306 and 420 guests respectively, an outdoor ampitheatre for 350 guests, as well as exhibition capacity and additional break out space.
Ayers Rock Resort has its own airport meaning that it’s easy to charter flights in and out, as well as using the helipads that are dotted around the resort. Several domestic airlines (Jetstar, Virgin and Qantas) fly into Ayers Rock Airport from most Australian capital cities, as well as Cairns, on a regular basis.
While you’re there, why not hop on a day tour to some of the other significant sites such as Kata Tjuta, a group of ancient monoliths smoothed into curvaceous boulders by the wind and rain, or Kings Canyon, a remote desert canyon, as well as checking out some cultural experiences such as a dot painting workshop or a bush tucker walk on site at the resort?
