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.

I'm not really a package tour kind of person, but if you are coming to Uluru and you want to experience a sunset or sunrise, you're going to feel like you are on one. The best vantage points are heavily populated and normally loud and also a bus drive away from your hotel, so it's not going to be the... More

The drinks and canapes on the dune with the sun setting and the dancing and music were very good. We descended to our tables and the wine flowed - we were called to the buffet table by table - there was nothing wrong with the food, the meat was cooked well and the salads were tasty but after hearing so...

Such a fantastic magical setting - food was really nice too and the service was faultless - we went on a cloudy night so missed the star talk but the lights were worth it

A cloudy night wasn't a good start, however each element seemed to be a token of what could have been. The canapés and performance were left wanting, the canapés exactly what was served at lesser priced tours. The setting was fine, the astronomy talk was a hard task given the the cloud cover but again seemed rushed. The food was... More

The evening began with champagne and canapes served while watching sunset over Uluru. We were then treated to an indigenous peoples’ performance as the sun set. We walked to the dinner location to find elegantly decorated tables and a gentleman playing the digeridoo. We were provided with a buffet consisting of crocodile, emu, and kangaroo with unlimited wine. We then... More

Wow! This was an amazing experience from start to finish. An expensive experience, but for those who can stretch their budget to include the Sound of Silence dinner and the Field of Lights visit (while it is around) should definitely do so! The whole tour was very well organised, from hotel pick-up, to champagne and canapes at sunset, to the... More

Great way to spend the end of a day and all nicely pulled together by the tour operator and their drivers/guides. We got to the. Viewing area and there were drinks and canaries to have whilst we were getting cameras out, and what an experience as the sun set over Uluru. One most definately for the bucket list

Enjoyed the night which commenced with transfers to our point where you have canopies and drinks viewing Uluru in the background. Then you are made to walk a short distance to where our dining experience begins. Tables are made up to 10 people. The night is explained to you, and then entree is served which was a beautiful tasting soup.... More
