Your Sounds of Silence experience begins with canapes and chilled sparkling wine served on a viewing platform overlooking the Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park. Watch as the sun sets over Uluru and feel the immense quiet carried on the breeze over this ancient inland sea. As darkness falls, listen to the haunting sound of a didgeridoo and wander down to join your table for an unforgettable introduction to Aboriginal culture through traditional dance followed by a bush tucker inspired buffet dining experience under the desert night sky, with only the distant domes of Kata Tjuta and red sand for walls. Sit back and relax while you enjoy your first course. Our attentive staff will keep your glass topped up with quality Australian wine and beer so you will want for nothing while you absorb your unique surroundings and meet your fellow table guests. As the night sky twinkles to life, help yourself to an outback buffet that incorporates native bush ingredients such as crocodile, kangaroo, barramundi and quandong. There are salads, barbecued meats and vegetables, as well as a luscious dessert course served with Australian tawny port. After dinner, settle back and listen to our resident star talker decode the southern night sky. Locate the Southern Cross, the signs of the zodiac, the Milky Way, as well as planets and galaxies that are visible due to the exceptional clarity of the atmosphere. Enjoy a steaming hot cup of tea or coffee before you head back to the resort.

This has got to be one of the best things we have done! The drinks and canapés reception was perfect as we watched fb sun set and colours around Ayres Rock change. The staff then welcomed us to our table with Ayres Rock as our...More

The viewing platform of the rock gave a great view of the rock at sunset but was hard to see past all the people, sparkling wine and canapes were average. After sunset a short walk to enjoy dinner on tables of eight, buffet dinner was...More

They've been doing this for a long time and so it's a very well-oiled machine, as well as very touristic. AAT Kings pick you up from your resort and bus you to the site where first you get to take pics of Uluru as the...More

The idea is great: having champaign and canapes while watching Uluru glowing in the setting sun; afterwards sitting under millions of stars and enjoying a nice formal dinner with your loved ones. Execution: ....so bad, so bad! Food is terrible buffet which we can tolerate....More

I was expecting a spectacular experience - I just want expecting as much as it delivered. 5 star, silver service dining but under the stars. Ay-may-zing. Do it!
