Table 131

Table 131, the incredible restaurant attached to Longitude 131, is one of Australia’s premier outback dining experiences.

At the arrival to your outdoor dinner table, enjoy canapés and cocktails as the sun dips below the horizon before being mesmerised by indigenous performers with a cultural dance. You will then feast on four delicious courses complemented by Australian wines. After dinner, return to the Dune House for after dinner drinks, or float back to the luxury of the provided tents.
