This month, Baillie Lodges celebrates two years at the helm of its latest iconic property; Longitude 131° at Uluru-Kata Tjuta in Australia’s famed Red Centre. It’s been a busy time for the team at Baillie Lodges, with the $2million first phase of a refreshment completed and plans for the next stages continuing. Most recently, luxurious balconies have been added to each of the camp’s 15 tents and a series of incredible, colourful indigenous artworks and ceramics have been commissioned and delivered from Ernabella Arts. New bespoke touring options have been workshopped, including a private tour to Ernabella for an experience of indigenous art and culture as well as a rare chance to meet the remote community’s resident artists. A decadent outdoor set up is planned for each guest tent over the coming months, replete with daybed, arm chairs, fireplace and luxury swag for a gentle, starlit slumber.
