Anyone else a seasoned traveller, but neglected their own backyard? Last week we headed to the NT to see the best our beautiful land has to offer! It sparked a new (and much anticipated) #LHL20kpost.
How does a first-class flight from Sydney (who can say “10am bubbly”? Not you after a few of them on the flight!), a night in Alice Springs at the Doubletree by Hilton, and a morning massage for two sound? Pretty swell to me. Let’s top it off though!
The next morning, walk off those cocktails on a tour of the East Macs, walk through the iconic Simpson’s Gap, and then prepare to board your very own private flight from Alice to Uluru, where you’ll see the magnificent rock from a bird’s eye view with a guide from your private pilot. Spend the early afternoon camel-back riding around the spectacular red desert, before settling in for champers at sunset.
The best part? You can see the stars like you are immersed in the Milky Way itself, at Uluru. So why not dine under them? Instead of walls, dine in an open-air restaurant with magnificent views of Uluru and the distant domes of Kata Tjuta.
The exclusive four-course dinner with Voyages Touring is infused with ancient native herbs and spices. Each dish is constructed to respect and put a spotlight on the quality and attributes of each ingredient and bring them together in harmony. Taste items such as pressed wallaby with fermented quandong as an entree, while main course could be pan roasted toothfish with coastal greens, desert oak and fermented muntries. Desert is a chocolate taste sensation with Davidson plum, lemon myrtle and quandong. To top it off, each dish carefully paired with premium Australian wine.
After dinner, head back via your private heli flight to your next resting place, the ultimate ‘glamping’ experience under the stars at Squeakywindmill boutique tent b&b. Spend the next three nights getting back to nature and winding down, with daily breakfast baskets, nightly champagnes by the fire at sunset and dinner cooked in your tent’s own private kitchen.
This could all be yours by financing/refinancing with #LHL as a lawyer. What’s the twist? Well there’s two. Firstly, by financing with us, you could be eligible to save on LMI which is $20k on an average $1m loan. There’s your NT trip of a lifetime paid for. Secondly, this actually doesn’t amount to quite as much as 20k. So you’ve got spending money left over!*
(*LHL condones the expense of LMI savings on ostensibly frivolous things. A Veuve champagne tower, buying a farm to home the 3000 puppies you want to save, a lifetime’s supply of hazelnut Haigh’s chocolate…)
