Dining Under a Desert Moon

Imagine the romance of a table for two in a wilderness setting under a canopy of the Southern Night Sky. The only light comes from the moon and the flickering glow of the fire. The only sound is from the whispering of the breeze through the Desert Oak trees and the crackling flames. While you soak up the atmosphere , a superb four course set menu is served, accompanied by some of Australia's finest wines. This is Under a Desert Moon, an exclusive dining experience at Kings Canyon Resort. It's designed for intimacy an romance with no more than eight couples dining on any one night. Under a Desert Moon is a wonderful way to unwind after a day hiking through Kings Canyon and Watarrka National Park.
