North American meeting planners experienced all that this incredible outback destination has to offer during a three-day educational visit to Uluru in June 2016.
On arrival, guests checked into the five-star Sails in the Desert Hotel at Ayers Rock Resort, then discovered a unique way to travel as they rode camels through the sand dunes to experience an outdoor welcome dinner with the ever-changing colours of the desert as backdrop.
On the second day, after being fitted with their own Akubra hats (traditionally worn in rural Australia), they travelled to an Aboriginal art gallery and cultural centre, where they participated in indigenous wood-carving and dot-painting workshops.
Attendees then flew by helicopter over Uluru and Kata Tjuta and enjoyed a tour of the base of the most famous rock in Australia with a local Aboriginal guide .
After watching the sun rise over Uluru on day three, guests were treated to a private tour of Field of Light, the light installation at the base of Uluru.
Guests stated that the trip far exceeded their expectations, and allowed them to discover experiences that only exist in Australia.
