Fantastic experience, lovely food, friendly staff. The star talk was my favourite part, even with the clouds in the sky he managed a very interesting and funny talk.
Another great experience to see the outback, the meal was fantastic and we met some lovely people that made our night.
What a great event. Very professionally done. Although there were a lot of fellow tourist at this event I never ever thought I was not being attended to personally. We were well informed of the sequence of the night as we travelled to our destination. Arriving we first were served chilled champagne and canapes and given plenty of time to watch and photograph the sunset and changing colours of Uluru. We then made our way to our beautiffully presented tables within a clearing in the middle of the red dirt desert. Although cold there was sufficient heaters to keep us warm. With Uluru in the background we were served a plentiful and gourmet meal together all the refreshments we could drink. Personal waiters at the tables made it a special and very enjoyable meal. Although we had some cloud cover we also had an equal amount of brillant stars. Due to the professionalism, care and commitment of the staff it was a very memorable experience I will never forget. Highly reccomended.
The tour was very well organised and professional. The staff were all friendly, the food was lovely and service was great. It is a great idea of being seated with other people you don't know, it's very interesting talking and discussing various things and meeting people from other places. We did learn a lot about the stars and could see them clearly. It's seems a popular tour and I could see why.
Excellent tour. Never seen so many stars, absolutely amazing. Thoroughly recommend this experience.
We had a wonderful evening. Met two very lovely and hilarious northern Irish ladies. Great Craic! Would highly recommend it!
This tour was one of the highlights of the 3 months we spent in Australia. The only negative was the flies which are a bit beyond your control.
Anyone who spends the time and money to travel to Uluru and does not go to this dinner will have missed a truly wonderful experience. The service, the food, the social experience and most of all the emotional aspect of this dinner all combine to make it a delightful evening. Do not miss it!
This is where I checked off "seeing the Southern Cross" from my bucket list! We had such an enjoyable evening and recommend that if you make it as far as Ayers Rock, then you absolutely must book the Sounds of Silence dinner. I am a bit picky with what I will eat so Kangaroo and Crocodile were avoided but there was plenty to drink and eat of all sorts; however, you do not attend this dinner for the food. Make plans to attend if you have a desire to see stars and a part of the universe you can not normally see if you live in the northern hemisphere or in any city where there is simply too much light. The astronomers were informative and we learned how to find land (sky)marks in the southern sky. There is a good telescope to see things up close once the lecture is over. On our remaining nights in Australia and New Zealand, we were able to find the stars, galaxies, and planets that we learned about at the dinner. This is a MUST DO on your visit to Ayers Rock.
Excellent evening and easy to chat to people only just met for that night. No problems with catering for vegetarians. Great time.
Staggeringly beautiful surroundings in which to dine! We will never forget this experience. Sunset over the Olgas was magic and Uluru was awesome, even in the distance. The meal itself was delicious; the hosts were great; service was great (my wine glass was never empty) and we LOVED it- thank you!
This was the most romantic, fun and beautiful dinning experience. we have never seen so many stars in our life and the food was great! When you get dropped off by the buses you are greeted with champagne to walk down to the area where they have an open bar and you watch the sunset.
If anyone is going to Ayres Rock then I would definitely recommentd this. Everything was excellently handled, food was good and the staff were very attentive. Not many stars out that night as cloudy but that couldn't be helped.
It was a beautiful experience..we enjoyed it! Well worth the money for the experience alone..food was good

Amazing, unique setting. Opening champagne reception well done. Good photo ops. Star-gazing talk fascinating. Buffet meal quite good. Would have liked more didgeridoo music.
The experience was amazing. We had a great dinner and entertainment ,the number of stars was amazing, we would book again next time we go back. The staff were fun and wonderful. Thank you for making our trip the best ever.
One of my most favorite memories: sitting in total silence and listening to nature, watching the stars. Everything was perfect from beginning to end, the food was impeccable and the service amazing. Word of caution: turn your light low to distract the bugs.
We all enjoyed the experience imensily I would recommend it to everyone visiting Ayes Rock.
A highlight of our trip, great chance to meet other travellers from around the world
sound of silence was amazing. Excellent food and wine. We enjoyed the company at our table especially the two German teenagers who were travelling with their parents they were very interesting to talk with. We would recommend dinner under the stars
Absolutely stunning and one of the best things we've done in Australia. Superb views of the outback, great staff, good food and the stargazing talk was quite spectacular.
Beautiful setting, lovely cocktail reception and amazing dinner. Star gazing was wonderful!! Highlight of our trip - highly reommended
The most breathtaking sunset of my life. Awe inspiring experience, great hospitality from the team. If you go to Uluru do not miss this experience. Due to clouds we saw no stars, but the stargazing experience was still made very entertaining by the stargazer
