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

We had a fantastic night, once the canapés were over which were a little poor,! it was an experience, loved the stargazing and didgeridoo player, the dancers were brief but that was to the good. Overall, an amazing night was had by all. Good food, good service, wind freely flowing, excellent company. A night to remember.

This was a fabulous tour with excellent food and company. Unfortuately it was cloudy so the star gazing experience did not happen - we were however given a 25 refund because of this - so a gold star there for the company.

The sounds of silence dinner was great. The dinner, the entertainment and the star gazing session made this our best stop while at Ayers Rock. Also the people who served the drinks and dinner were outstanding in their service to us. Truly a great experience, which my family will always remember. Thanks.

Spectacular! We had a beautiful clear night and the stars were amazing. Even seeing the rings of Saturn through Astrologers telescope.
I read a few reviews complaining of the food. Those people need to get a grip and remember where they are. Bush tucker is what we went for. Not hotel food. Must do.

We loved our stay in Ayers Rock at the Sounds of Silence and the restaurant was wonderful . The buffet dinner was amazingly delicious with a huge array of healthy and delictable choices. This is one of the best meals that we had during our travels in Australia and New Zealand.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Stunning!! The people were great, the food was great, the view was spectacular. So much culture in one place. The didgeridoo playing was so nice while the sun set and the star gazing was really good. Would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Uluru as it is a night under the stars you won't forget!
