- The descent into Ayers Rock Airport must be one of Australia's most alluring. You soak in the infinite expanse of desert before landing. You board your air-conditioned transfer coach to your hotel, a short 10 minutes from the Airport.
- Priority check-in is an easy and relaxed process. You then settle in for a candid, one of a kind experience with the local Aboriginal people. The Anangu perform a traditional welcoming ceremony. The 'Welcome to Anangu Land' event is an authentic and thrilling introduction to the ever-lasting bond between the people and this land.
- Spend the afternoon settling into your hotel room before heading to dinner.
- Tonight, you are treated to an award winning dining experience
under the stars. Sounds of Silence is four hours of gourmet BBQ
cuisine and premium Australian wines served in a setting like no
other. Surrounded by nothing but the dramatic silence of the desert
you experience its vivid changing colours at sunset. After dinner
the desert silence is interrupted by haunting stories as your star
talker shares the ancient celestial lore of the region. To complete
this unforgettable evening speak to your Conference and Banqueting
Coordinator about including an INMA song and dance
- Rise early this morning and collect your breakfast box before travelling to the Uluru sunrise viewing area, Talinguru nyakunytjaku. Light creeps across the horizon, bringing out the desert's bold palette. After sunrise the Mala Walk beckons, showcasing the native animal and plant life that call the base of Uluru home. Travel by coach the short distance to Mutitjulu Walk. Your guide uncovers the natural grace and abundance of the Mutitjulu Waterhole. Visit the Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre, where you learn about the enigmatic culture of the local Aboriginal people and browse through Indigenous arts.
- Return to the Resort to enjoy a casual lunch in the newly renovated Uluru Meeting Place.
- Venture to the Uluru Camel Farm to discover the role camels played in bringing European explorers to the area. Camel rides can be restricted to a small yard or encompass kilometres of desert.
- Begin the evening with a poolside dinner. This is a relaxed
setting ideal for networking and reliving the day's events. Under
the light of lanterns and pillar candles delegates can dine in a
formal dinner, casual BBQ or cocktail setting.
- It's a new day. Take your time as you head to indulge in a full buffet breakfast.
- You may think you already understand just how vast the Red Centre is. Think again. A scenic flight or helicopter tour showcases Uluru and Kata Tjuta from an entirely different perspective, while incorporating the sheer expanse of Lake Amadeus.
- Enjoy a do it yourself BBQ lunch at the rustic Outback Pioneer Hotel. Or if you're feeling a little too relaxed our chef will happily cook his finest cuts to your liking.
- In the hours before sunset you travel to Kata Tjuta. An introduction to the lush diversity of native plants and animals that live amongst the domes leaves you with no doubt as to why this is a sacred Indigenous site. Reaching Walpa Gorge you stop to hear the wind whistling through the maze of domes. The stunning sunset only cements your new appreciation for the obvious spirituality of Kata Tjuta.
- Tonight is the night. For event planners the fun of this event
began weeks or even months ago. It began while deciding which of
Ayers Rock Resort's inspiration venues would be yours for the
evening. Perhaps you chose to transform the lush grass carpet of
Yulara Oval into a festival, offering delegates interactive
displays of dot painting, traditional song and dance, spear
throwing and the renowned Drum Atweme group. Or is the sweeping
ceiling and grandeur of the Tjunga Ballroom that suits your gala
evening. Perhaps the Amphitheatre is transformed into an Arabian
oasis or a shimmery tribute to the extravagance of Priscilla Queen
of the Desert. Endless options make deciding half the fun.
- On your final day you your wake up with visions of last night event playing through your mind. You can't wait to relive the evening with delegates at breakfast.
All too soon you have checked out and boarded your flight home. As you take off you look down this wide red land. With everything you've learned it somehow looks different than before
