Luxury outback camp Longitude 131 at Uluru-Kata Tjuta in Australia’s Red Centre reopened in March following a more than $2.5-million makeover. The enhancement took place over just four weeks during a short closure of the luxury lodge in February.

The refurbishment comes as owner Baillie Lodges marked 10 years of operating Longitude 131, having taken over management in November 2023 and embarking on a series of architectural and styling upgrades to appeal to the higher-end experiential traveller.

Included in the just-completed works are a sweeping refreshment of the each of the 15 luxury guest tents, as well as the main Dune House with its restaurant and outdoor terrace overlooking Uluru.

A starring feature is a newly commissioned artwork by Anangu artist Carlene Thompson from the Ernabella Arts Community, entitled Kalaya Ngura – Emu Country- which depicts the artist’s family’s country near Kanpi in the Western APY Lands. Guests can look forward to seeing Carlene’s distinctive artwork in the Dune House.
