Romance in the Red Centre

Monday, 10 December 2018

From dawn to dusk there's opportunities to wine and dine, indulge in a relaxing spa treatment, or delight in the wonders of your outback surrounds. Go as fast or slow as you like, all the while embracing the unique and fascinating Indigenous culture, intertwined throughout every aspect of the resort experience.

We've selected four of the best moments to cosy up to your special somebody for a truly memorable adventure.

Wake when the desert does for a traditional Aussie breakie and a pretty incredible sunrise.

Desert Awakenings Couple

You might not want to pull yourself out of your heavenly, comfortable 'Ahh' bed, but trust us, it's worth it.You won't want to miss seeing the last stars fade from view, and the magic of the desert come to life as the dawn of a new day transforms Uluru and Kata Tjuta. From a private and remote sunrise viewing site, embrace the rugged and rustic atmosphere, before enjoying the great Australian breakfast - a bacon and egg roll or homemade damper with Golden Syrup.

Once you've had your fill of coffee and food a local guide will lead you on a short walk to Mutitjulu waterhole at the base of Uluru and observe the ancient rock paintings which highlight the importance of this site to Anangu.

Fall in love with Field of Light.

Field of Light

Everybody loves a bit of mood lighting, and when there's 50,000 coloured spheres of light dotting the desert coupled with a three course bush tucker feast, you really can't pass up this once in a lifetime experience. Combine Bruce Munro's critically acclaimed Field of Light exhibition with the iconic Sounds of Silence alfresco dining experience, and you have A Night at Field of Light - a truly special affair.

Begin you magical evening with a selection of outback canapes and sparkling wine as darkness falls around you and a didgeridoo plays in the background. With the Field of Light gently twinkling to life in the distance behind you, you tuck into your three course dinner. Then, in your post dinner slumber, sit back and relax as you listen to the resident star talker decode the southern sky in front of your eyes before you get to enjoy a closer view of the dazzling installation with a stroll through the stems of light swaying in the breeze around you. All in all a top notch evening.
