Ayers Rock Resort is set to host Outback Fest, a celebration of the Aussie outback featuring the Uluru Camel Cup Race Day, from Friday May 2 to Monday May 5 2014.

“Outback Fest is an annual event that is part our major events program in 2014,” Voyages executive general manager sales marketing and distribution, Ray Stone, said.

“We believe that Outback Fest enhances the already strong guest experience on offer at the spiritual heart of Australia and gives an even better reason for people to plan a trip to Uluru.”

Festival highlights include an outback-themed Sounds of Silence dining experience under the stars, with a special appearance by an authentic outback whip cracker; the Outback BBQ Bash and Uluru Camel Cup Calcutta, featuring boot-scooting and live country music; the Voyages ‘Maiden’ Camel Races; and a true blue Frock Up & Rock Up Outback Ball, complete with a red desert dance floor and live entertainment.

Three night packages start from $326 per person twin share including buffet breakfast daily. Conditions apply.
