of these desert animals (at own expense). Continue on to the permanent
campsite at Yulara and enjoy a tasty lunch before exploring the
36 domes of Kata Tjuta. Finally, as the sun begins to disappear
below the horizon, grab a glass of sparkling wine and watch the
rock's rich colours change against the backdrop of a blazing Red
Centre sunset. The perfect end to a remarkable day is awaiting you
back at camp our famous 1,000 star dinner. With the red earth
at your feet and an infinite sprawl of stars overhead, sit down
to a candlelit spread of locally sourced food and wines, and soak
up the vastness of outback skies during a hosted dinner you'll never
