What You Can Expect

Sounds of Silence Restaurant

Sounds of Silence

Well before sunset, your van arrives to pick you up from your Ayers Rock hotel and take you to an elegant outdoor dining area situated in a desert clearing. You are welcomed with a glass of chilled sparkling wine and a spread of Outback-style canapés, served on a viewing platform that overlooks Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.

Take in the changing colors of the sunset over Kata Tjuta and Uluru as you nibble appetizers, sip wine and hear the sounds of live didgeridoo. Keep your camera handy for great photo ops.

As the stars come out, make your way to your dinner table, elegantly laid out with white tablecloths, candles and heat lamps nearby to keep the chill away. Seated with other visitors from around the world, dine on a 3-course bushtucker-inspired buffet with dishes that may include Australian delicacies such as kangaroo, barramundi, crocodile and quandong (a native fruit). Attentive waitstaff come to your table to refill your wine glasses with unlimited Australian wine and beer throughout your meal.

A traditional dance performance provides an introduction to Aboriginal culture and an after-dinner talk by an expert star-gazer takes you on a tour of the Southern Hemisphere's night skies. Learn how to identify key stars, planets and constellations, then take a closer look at the heavens through a high-quality telescope after the presentation.

At the end of this special evening in the Red Centre, your coach returns you to your Ayers Rock hotel.

Please note: You do not require a National Park entrance ticket to attend the dinner

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015

Just wonderful [even if it did rain during dinner] and topped off the end of our holiday.
Couldn't fault the location, the staff or the meal.
Would definitely recommend it.

What a night! So nice! From the start with dinks at an area by Ayers Rock to the dinner part, it was a great experience. So relaxing. No noise at all as you are in the middle of nowhere.

My absolute favorite part was when they turned off all of the lights from dinner and it was pitch black and the stars lit up like crazy! Living in big ciities I never see stars. The lights from the stats were so intense. Then a Star Talker tells us amazing things about all of the stars and the formations and points out literally with a pointer all the famous stars like Milky Way, Gemini and Southern Cross. So educated and entertaining he was!
