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 November 2015

Absolutely phenomenal experience! The staff were so friendly and attentive! The food was delicious and our wine glasses kept full. The view of Uluru and Kata Tjuta at sunset was gorgeous! We had indigenous entertainment a didgeridoo player and some aboriginal dancing as well as a star gazing session. It is absolutely beautiful out there at night and the company is great! It was really cool to sit at a table with a handful of people you never met and walk away good friends! You meet people from all over the world! A truly great experience. It is a bit pricey but I'm only 20 and I was willing to take the stretch and spend a bit more....and I'm glad I did. You won't regret it!

Fantastic trip, so well organised and I was so impressed that viator had already been in contact with our hotel regarding our booking so when we checked in they advised of the pick up details etc. without me even asking!

Thoughtful setting, giving both sunset and Urluru views, attentive service, delicious meal. We were hustled onto the bus with our desserts when lightning broke out on the horizon, then offered a 25 refund because we missed the star show.
