There are places to eat dinner and there are places to dine but very few are so spectacular that they almost defy description. One of those places is in the desert near one of the natural wonders of the world, Uluru (formally know commonly as Ayers Rock) and is called ”The Sounds of Silence”
The Adventure begins as the bus pulls up out front of Sails in the Desert Hotel, about one hour before sunset. The bus ride lasts only a few minutes and takes you near a large sand dune not too far from Uluru. You then stroll up to the top where you are served Champagne and hors d’oeuvres and listen to verbal and musical stories from a local of the area. All the while, the sun gets lower and the red rock changes colors of red. A magical start to the evening, with the sun setting, listening to the sounds of the didgeridoo reverberating through the desert you feel small and yet a part of this magical land.
After dinner a star story teller or startalker, takes you on a tour of the spectacular southern night sky telling stories of the dreamtime as they relate to the stars. There are also some telescopes set up for viewing the moon and stars and even the occasional planet.
The evening is about four hours long and will give memories for a lifetime. Koala would recommend this as Must Go!
