In 2015, Uluru provided an inspirational setting for the inaugural ACO Uluru Festival – a partnership between the ACO and Voyages Ayers Rock Resort. We are delighted to once again present the weekend festival in June 2017, led by Richard Tognetti.

Uluru, the spiritual heart of Australia, has an undeniable attraction. Voyages Ayers Rock Resort is a serene and beautiful oasis in the desert landscape and provides a perfect venue for three sublime ACO concerts.

In 2015, the Festival sold out almost as soon as it was announced, so be sure to secure your spot for this year. The ACO Uluru Festival is limited to just 400 guests.

To be part of this transcendental experience, visit or call 1300 134 044
