Travel Itinerary for this Event in 2018

All Delegates will need to organize and be responsible for all their own travel plans, travel insurance and accommodation for this Retreat at Uluru….some of you might like to stay longer and tour after the retreat so that would be an option that you can plan individually.
We realize it is a long way off but as Ayers Rock is an isolated place and bookings need to be secured as soon as possible.
Ayers Rock Resort has offered a special deal for accommodation bookings.

Delegates attending the Retreat will need to book the following travel dates for flights and accommodation.
