Renowned as the spiritual heart of Australia, the Red Centre in the Northern Territory is rich in Aboriginal culture and rugged outback beauty. Dual World Heritage-listed Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is a living cultural landscape, covering an area over 311,000 acres. Australia’s most recognisable natural icon and one of the world’s largest monoliths, Uluru (Ayers Rock) is the region’s gem and the sacred red domes of Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) stand nearby.

Delve into the foundation of Anangu culture and learn some of the ancient creation stories of the traditional custodians. The timeless, rolling red sand dunes of the desert are surprisingly alive with verdant native vegetation and a myriad of wildlife. Spend time exploring the stunning flora and fauna and come face to face with this irresistible land in a sensory experience at once magic, majestic and splendidly isolated.
Indigenous artworks from local artists stand alongside an array of artefacts of the first western pioneers. Glass doors open on to a timeless desert landscape, affording guests an easy encounter with the outdoors. Floor to ceiling windows and a high canopied roof offer a cool retreat from the Red Centre and lead the style of the guest pavilions beyond.

Positioned at the highest point at Longitude 131°, the Dune Top is surrounded by 360° panoramic views – it’s the perfect venue to drink in the changing colours of Uluru and Kata-Tjuta. By day, survey the scene from the deck or from the cool of the plunge pool (or warmth in winter) and select an icy beverage from the bar – it’s always a toast-worthy moment! By night, the Dune Top transforms into a sleek setting for sundowners. Secluded dining alcoves offer the option to dine intimately under the stars.

The semi-arid climate produces great travelling conditions. Warm, sunny days with minimal rainfall are the norm for much of the year. Typical desert weather patterns make for reasonable fluctuations in temperature between day and night. During the summer months, average temperatures range from 35°C during the day to 18°C overnight. In the winter months, the average daytime temperature is 22°C and 0°C overnight.
