Daily Pampering: “Rough it” in a luxury tent with Thomas Keneally

Renowned Australian author Thomas Keneally (best known for Schindler’s Ark, which served as the basis for a little movie called Schindler’s List) is heading to Longitude 131, a luxury tented camp near Uluru July 9-11, and you can be among the lucky few who get to meet him and share stories around the (luxury) campfire.

Frontiers Elegant Journeys has put this unique experience together, to be enjoyed as a simple two-night all-inclusive holiday ($4,920 per person, based on double occupancy), or as the climax of a larger “Elegant Journey,” like a trek through the Outback or Tasmania, or the Daintree Rainforest or Great Barrier Reef. During your stay at Longitude 131, you’ll have the opportunity to get tips on storytelling and writing from Keneally himself, discover the history and traditions of the local indigenous people, and enjoy the spectacular scenery from the air by either a scenic helicopter or fixed-wing flight

How often do you get to rough it in the outback with the guy who wrote Schindler’s Ark? I mean, come on. This exclusive package is one-time-only, and limited 28 guests (14 tents). Click here for more info on Frontiers Elegent Journeys and to request the Writing Under the Stars package.
