Attractions near the Sails In The Desert

The castle in the Red Centre

Rising out of the rich earth, Uluru stands as tall and proud as the most revered castles around the world. This iconic Australian landmark is a testament to the creativeness of nature and has been considered sacred by Indigenous Australians for hundreds of years. Regular tours are run from the hotel out to Uluru.

Depending on which tour your choose, you can see Uluru during the first glows of sunrise, from above on a helicopter tour, or even on the back of a vintage Harley Davidson motorcycle. Each tour offers a unique experience and includes a lot of information about the area worth learning.

Works of art 

The area around the hotel is populated by numerous Indigenous communities with very talented and creative individuals. You can admire their work at one of the various galleries nearby. Mingkiri Arts presents a collection of hand-crafted glassware, jewellery and pottery, while Craftworks offers local art pieces. 

Head into Town Square for the daily Indigenous Art Market where you can watch artists create their paintings right in front of you. If you don't want to leave the hotel, no problems! There's a gallery right inside showcasing a wide range of Indigenous Australian art and crafts.
