Sounds of Silence Ayers Rock Resort

Alice Springs Darwin Katherine Ulu r u Kings Canyon

Dine under the stars in the desert against the backdrop of Uluru and Kata Tjuta, tucking into gourmet outback fare.

Your Sounds of Silence experience begins with canapes and chilled sparkling wine served on a viewing platform overlooking the Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park. As the sun sets and darkness falls to the sound of a didgeridoo, join your table of fellow travellers for an unforgettable dining experience and an introduction to Aboriginal culture with a traditional dance performance under the outback sky.

Our attentive staff will keep your glass full with a quality selection of Australian wine and beers while first course is served. As the night sky twinkles to life, help yourself to a bush tucker inspired buffet that incorporates native bush ingredients such as crocodile, kangaroo, barramundi and quandong.

After dinner, settle back and listen to our resident star talker decode the southern night sky. Locate the Southern Cross, the signs of the zodiac, the Milky Way, as well as planets and galaxies that are visible due to the exceptional clarity of the atmosphere. After dinner, enjoy dessert with a glass of port, tea or coffee.

    Sounds of Silence

    Your journey begins on a lone sand dune. A meandering path takes you to an uninterrupted, 360 degree view of this vast landscape. In front of you is the fabled Uluru / Ayers Rock, behind you are the domes of Kata Tjuta / The Olgas and, possibly the most spectacular sunset you have ever seen. Here enjoy sparkling wine and a selection of delectable canapes, as the sun sets in a blaze of reds and oranges.

    Feast on a gourmet barbecue buffet of authentic Australian delicacies including barramundi, kangaroo, emu, crocodile, bush salads and classic desserts, complemented by some of Australia's finest wines. Attention then turns to some of the world's best stargazing, as the resident 'star talker' takes you on an unforgettable tour of a spectacular southern night sky. As you wind down after a delicious dinner, you are offered a choice of tea, coffee or port, or in winter, savour a special treat of hot mulled wine.
