Albany to Uluru with Stephen Scourfield

2021-12-06 23:30:00


Great travel gives us contrast. And that’s just what a long weekend flying direct from Albany to Uluru gives … in abundance.

Uluru is the red heart of Australia — something to be experienced more than once in a lifetime. And this is a unique opportunity to fly there direct from Albany.

I’ll be joining the flight and will be with our guests all the way through. We have been keen to create an opportunity to travel with our regional readers — and I couldn’t be more happy than to do this in partnership with NT Now, which is part of Holidays of Australia.

The direct exclusive air charter organised by NT Now means we will fly from Albany airport direct to Yulara airport. From there, it’s just a short, included, coach ride to our accommodation to start our adventure.

We will stay for two nights at the five star Sails in the Desert at Ayers Rock Resort, including daily breakfast.

We’ll go sightseeing around Uluru and visit Uluru Cultural Centre.

And the trip includes the Field of Light — the 50,000 lights installed by Bruce Munro, who did the smaller Field of Light in Albany in 2018.

And then, of course, there is the evening sky ablaze with colours as the sun sets over Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.

Travellers can also opt for the Sounds of Silence dinner.

The price is from $2659 per person, twin share.

It means you don’t have to drive to Perth. It means you will be joining an exclusive and well-managed flight. And it means that the holiday really begins at the airport, as the captain and his crew will be with us all weekend (they stay at Uluru, then fly us back to Albany), and make the flight informative and fun. This is not a usual scheduled flight, as you will get a good look at Uluru from the air before we land.


It’s obviously ideal for travellers from Albany — a town of 30,000 people.

But for anyone living on the South Coast, or lower Wheatbelt, it’s a great chance to join a remarkable long weekend without driving to Perth.


The WA Government is about the announce the opening of WA’s borders for travel to all States and Territories, and internationally. We expect that to be from the end of January.

The WA Government has also said that, once open and with the 90 per cent vaccination rate we are due to have from late January, it has no intention of closing borders again.
