Northern Territory holiday destination Ayers Rock Resort has signed up to WWF’s Earth Hour.

Passengers on flights to Australia on the night of March 26th may notice that the country is a little darker than usual, as a main holiday resort has signed up to WWF’s Earth Hour.

Each year on this date many of the world’s major landmarks are plunged into darkness for one hour in order to raise awareness of climate change.

This year, they will be joined by Ayers Rock Resort, where guests will be treated to a special night of eco-friendly fun.

Stargazing, live acoustic entertainment and animal walks will all take place from 7.30pm to 9.30pm on the night, in conjunction with the nearby Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.

Furthermore, from 8.30pm to 9.30pm, all non-essential lighting throughout the resort will be switched off.

Earth Hour began in Australia in 2007, with the co-operation of 2.2million individuals and 200 businesses.

In its fourth year, hundreds of millions of citizens around the world are expected to take part, while WWF is encouraging people to ‘go beyond the hour’ and make a commitment to live a more sustainable lifestyle all year round.
