The UNESCO World Heritage-listed Uluru (Ayers Rock) is Australia’s most iconic natural wonder and lies at the heart of the Aussie outback. An evening visit lets you behold Uluru at sunset, when the rock is at its most magical, before enjoying dinner beneath the desert stars. Here are your options for dinner experiences at Ayers Rock.
Sounds of Silence Dinners
A romantic way to top off a day’s desert exploration, the Sounds of Silence Dinner begins with sparkling wine and canapes as you watch the sunset over Uluru. A delicious barbecue buffet dinner is served, including Australian delicacies like crocodile, barramundi, and kangaroo. You’ll also get the chance to taste traditional bush tucker. Live entertainment includes Aboriginal dancing and didgeridoo music, followed by a guided star-gazing experience. For the best value, enjoy a Sounds of Silence Dinner on a multi-day tour that includes visits to Uluru, Kata Tjuta, and the Kings Canyon, plus accommodations at Ayers Rock Resort.
