Scenic Flight Getaway - Uluru

Join us on a flying visit to Uluru for the first exclusive Scenic Flight Getaway series and spend 24 hours in one of the most breathtaking destinations in Australia. It’s the ultimate weekend adventure.

Your weekend adventure

Your weekend getaway starts from 8am in Sydney on Saturday 5 December, and returns from Ayers Rock by 6pm on Sunday 6 December 2020.

Indulge in some bubbles at a pre-flight breakfast event in the Qantas Business Lounge before taking off on board your Qantas 737, enjoying low level scenic fly-bys on departure of the world-famous Sydney Harbour and surrounding beaches. 

Relax on board with our inflight hospitality as the aircraft makes its way across our sunburnt country to the heart of Australia and descends to do low level circuits around Uluru and Kata Tjuta with views of the expansive salt lakes of Lake Amadeus. Our highly trained pilots will manoeuvre the aircraft to afford spectacular views for passengers on both sides of the aircraft.  At 348 metres high, Uluru is a sandstone monolith around 550 million years old and has special cultural significance for Anangu, the traditional owners.

Land in Uluru and spend 24 hours experiencing one of the greatest wonders of the world, including the full spectrum of the colours of the spiritual heart of Australia. Your whirlwind tour includes a Night at the Field of Light including a three-course dinner under the stars using native ingredients, with a didgeridoo performance and an Indigenous interpretation of the night sky.

When the night sky has descended into darkness, visit the spectacular Field of Lights installation before returning to your room at Ayers Rock Resort’s premier hotel, 'Sails in the Desert'. 

Rise before dawn to watch the sun rise over Uluru, then visit the mystical domes of Kata Tjuta and Walpa Gorge before heading back to the resort for brunch.

As your weekend trip of a lifetime comes to an end, return home on your Qantas flight with a final low-level sweep of Sydney Harbour before landing back at Sydney Airport.

Note: the flight path is subject to change due to weather conditions on the day and there may be an alternative flight path which may not take in all these sights.

This Scenic Flight Getaway weekend is operated and co-hosted by Qantas in partnership with Voyages Indigenous Tourism Australia.

The flight will operate with net zero emissions – with 100% of emissions carbon offset. The offsets will be directed to traditional fire management projects operated by Indigenous-owned enterprises in the Kimberley region in Western Australia and are all recognised under Australia’s ‘Climate Active’ standard. 

The Qantas Group is committed to reducing its impact on the environment and was the second airline group in the world to announce it would commit to net zero carbon emissions by 2050.

As part of this commitment through the Qantas Future Planet team, Qantas is one of the largest purchasers of Indigenous Carbon Credits in Australia. This support provides employment and engagement opportunities for Indigenous Groups across regional Australia.
