Sounds of Silence Experiences

Sounds of Silence Dinner

At the Sounds of Silence dinner you will dine under the canopy of the desert night, while a storyteller shares with you tales as told in the stars.

Entered into the Australian Tourism Hall of Fame, Sounds of Silence offers the best of the Red Centre distilled into four magical hours. An evening of dining under the sparkling outback sky.

Sunset canapés.

Your journey begins on a lone sand dune. A path takes you to an uninterrupted, three hundred and sixty degree view of this vast landscape. In front of you is the fabled Uluru; behind you are the domes of Kata Tjuta and, possibly the most spectacular sunset you have ever seen. Here you enjoy sparkling wine and a selection of delectable canapés.

Dining under the sparkling outback sky

As the sun sets, you feast on a BBQ buffet of authentic Australian delicacies examples include barramundi, kangaroo, emu and crocodile, bush salads and classic desserts, complemented by some of Australia's finest wines.


Attention then turns to some of the world's best stargazing, as our startalker takes you on a tour of the spectacular southern night sky. As you wind down after dinner, you are offered a choice of tea, coffee or port. In winter, guests gather around a campfire to savour a special treat of hot mulled wine.

Tali Wiru - Exclusive Dining Experience

'Tali Wiru', meaning beautiful dune in local Anangu language, encapsulates the magic of fine dining under the Southern Desert sky. Instead of walls, this open-air restaurant has magnificent views of Uluru and the distant domes of Kata Tjuta, and for unique ambiance there's the stillness of the desert at night.

Relax with Champagne and canapés as the sun sets to the sound of a didgeridoo. As day turns to night, stroll to the top of the dune for a table d'hote four-course dinner, matched with premium Australian wine. The menu includes mouth-watering cuisine such as Native Thyme and Garlic Grilled Darling Downs Wagyu Fillet, Wattleseed Rubbed Kangaroo Carpaccio, Bunya Nut and Shallot Crusted Polenta Fondant and Bush Yoghurt Foam.

The dishes have been carefully paired with premium Australian varietals from across the major regions. Discerning palates will delight at the diversity and quality on offer. After dinner, an Indigenous storyteller will captivate you with stories of the world's oldest living culture.

A unique dining experience on an isolated dune top overlooking Uluru and the distant domes of Kata Tjuta, for no more than 20 guests at any one time. Be seated with your partner or travel companions. To conserve the intimacy of the Tali Wiru experience, groups larger than six people are split across separate tables.

The contrast between the spectacular natural setting and the world-class gastronomic adventure on your plate is simply awe-inspiring.

Tali Wiru is so much more than a dining experience; it's a moment in time remembered forever.
