Day 1 - 5

Uluru | 4 Nights

Rising dramatically from the Central Australian desert, the huge red rock of Uluru is one of Australia’s most iconic attractions. Formerly known as Ayers Rock, Uluru is made of sandstone about half a billion years old. It stands 348 metres high and has a circumference of 9.4 km. It has also been listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Upon arrival in Ayers Rock Airport Uluru, you will meet your personal assistant and driver to transfer you to your resort which is located just 15 minutes’ drive from the Airport.

Enjoy your day at your own leisure upon arrival.

During your stay in Uluru, you can enjoy the following activities:

Sunset in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park

Uluṟu-Kata Tjuṯa National Park is a protected area in the Northern Territory of Australia. The park is home to both Uluru and Kata Tjuta, which also listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site since the 20th-century.

It is world-famous for its spectacular sunrises and sunsets. As the sunlight plays with the landscape, the rock formations change color before your eyes.

Taking the time to pause and contemplate the sunrise or sunset is always memorable. But experiencing it at Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park takes the experience to a whole new level. The vastness of the half-lit desert landscape, the grasses gently swaying in the breeze and the enthralling, ever-changing rock texture offers a spectacle second to none.

Bruce Munro’s incredible Field of Light and Dinner

Discover an outback wonderland as the Uluru sunset continues, with the mighty monolith fading slowly to the background as the field of lights takes center stage.

A 15-acre walk-through artwork, Field of Light is a sculptural composition that covers Sensorio’s rolling hills with an array of over 58,800 stemmed spheres lit by fiber-optics, gently illuminating the landscape in subtle blooms of morphing color. Powered by solar, the stunning exhibition captivates visitors, inviting them to engage with the countryside through an ethereal light-based, sculptural experience.

As darkness descends on the desert, guests are transported to dine under a glittering canopy of stars. Dine on the best the Central Coast has to offer, relax with a glass of local wine or beer as you walk through the field, and listen to the sounds of live musicians performing nightly.

Helicopter Flights and Camel Ride Tours

Take a Red Center adventure to new heights, lifting off from the lodge’s helipad on a scenic helicopter flight. Most popular is the 30-minute aerial tour of Uluru and Kata Tjuta, ideal as an exhilarating departure experience

After landing, join a camel train through red dune country, with Uluru and Kata Tjuta as a stunning backdrop. Most popular at sunrise and sunset, tours are guided by cameleers who share the animals’ quirky names and stories. These meditative tours are a nod to the original Red Center pioneers.

Day 5 - 9

Great Barrier Reef | 4 Nights

The Great Barrier Reef is a site of remarkable variety and beauty on the north-east coast of Australia. It holds great scientific interest as the habitat of species such as the dugong (‘sea cow’) and the large green turtle, which are threatened with extinction.

Today you will be transferred to the Ayers Rock Airport to fly to Great Barrier Reef to stay in a resort which located within another hour of scenic flight from Cairns with a chartered plane. Ayers Rock to Cairns flight takes about 3 hours.

Upon arriving in Cairns, you will be greeted and driven to board the charter plane all the way to Great Barrier Reef. Enjoy the rest of the day at your own leisure.

Enjoy the following activities during your stay in Great Barrier Reef:

Diving, Snorkeling, or Fishing

Great Barrier Reef has at least 9 diving sites around with thousands of different reefs, and hundreds of species from turtles, reef sharks, and manta rays. Maximum depth is about 30 meters deep.

Experience some of the most picturesque reef and marine life by simply stepping off the beach. You can have a private lesson of snorkeling, or guided beach and local snorkel tour at your own choice.

Fishing is also one of the major attractions that makes Great Barrier Reef like nowhere else. Your catches will be delivered back to your hotel to be prepared by the Executive Chef for your dinner in the evening.

Motorized Dinghies and Glass Bottom Kayak

Private dinghies are a one of the signatures of Great Barrier Reef. The most popular activity is to take a picnic hamper, your snorkel gear and motor to a private beach for a day of tranquility and exploring. You select your picnic menu for two the night before and head down to the Beach Club the next morning

where your boat and picnic await. For those who wish to enjoy a private beach picnic but would rather not take a dinghy – a member of our Marine team will personally take you and pick you up.

Taking a glass bottom kayak out into the waters opens up an underwater treasure trove. At a leisurely pace and stopping to hover over coral, schools of fish and giant clams – this is a beautiful way to explore the reef. Or Paddle Boarding is also a serene and self-paced way to navigate the waters.

Reef Discovery and Private Beach Picnic

After adorning wet suit jackets, a private boat charter will take you on a snorkel tour of the famed Clam Gardens or Mermaid Cove, just a short sail from Lizard Island. Arriving at a secluded beach side location, you will soak up the natural beauty of their surroundings while enjoying fresh seafood. Staying true to Lizard Island’s supreme service standards, you will be waited on by a private butler.
