Longitude 131 takes 'glamping' to another level. The tents are lavishly decorated in a traditional Australian style with a white dome roof, billowing drapes, plush five star furnishing.

The Dune House is the central building with dining room, open bar and library and here meals can be enjoyed communally with other guests or private dining can also be arranged. Dining at Table 131 is something that all guests must experience at Longitude 131 - it is atmospheric alfresco dining at its best with the sound of the didgeridoo accompanying modern, Australian fusion cuisine. There is even a resident storyteller to share stories of the past around the camp fire.
An exclusive touring program is included in your stay here, and with only a few other guests you will get a unique insight into this sacred land, the aboriginal culture and the flora and fauna of this vast desert landscape. There is also a fantastic pool from where you can watch the changing colors of the rock as the sun sinks low over the plains.
