The menu includes sizzling gourmet sausages, a delicious selection of meats, seasonal salads and fresh bread rolls accompanied by a complementary selection of wine, beer and soft drinks.

After dinner, relax with a cup of tea or coffee as the sun gradually sinks below the desert plain to reveal a myriad of stars in the outback’s spectacular night sky.

The Ayers Rock desert is one of the best places on earth to view the southern night sky. Your local guide and star expert will lead you through the constellations and planets as they move about the sky. Discover the zodiac constellations, find south using the Southern Cross and be amazed by the gleaming Milky Way. This is an experience not to be missed.

Uluru is incredible and having a delicious dinner in view of it and seeing how bright and clear the stars are was amazing. Highly recommend to really get everything out of your trip.

Very generous drinks and nibbles followed by sunset at Uluru. What a sight! The barbeque was great and the star watching talk was really fun. Excellent but just remember you have to purchase your park pass on top of the cost of the tour!

Great experience. One of the best evenings of my life!

We were picked up promptly at our resort. This was our first activity, so we immediately paid for our Park passes before we got on the bus. Made the process super easy. Great trip out to Uluru with plenty of wine and snacks available while watching the incredible changes at sunset. The dinner was very good and the overcast sky cleared just in time for the star gazing! Wonderful trip!

I did this tour quite some time ago now but it is still one of my favorite travel memories. It was amazing to see Uluru in the setting sun and the starlight bbq was great. Our guides were vegan which made my rare steak request amusing to them, but they happily provided all guests with their food cooked to order. It was fantastic and I would do it again if back in Australia.

Absolutely loved this trip. They picked us up from the hotel and we watched the sunset on the big red rock while sipping champagne and eating small appetizers. Then we took the bus closer to the red rock to a nice outside setup dinner. I loved that it was long table so everybody could meet and talk to each other and the food was how you wanted it cookedwell done, rare, etc.. A little bit of everything that was so delicious. Afterwards, there was a star tour. Unfortunately, it was a full moon so not everything was visible, but they still pointed out a lot of the brighter stars. It was freezing at night, so bring an extra jacket! If I go back I'd do this tour again in hopes of a new moon.

We had a great time. I imagined a huge crowd of people but I was pleasantly surprised. We had enough space and drinks to enjoy the sunset. Claire, our host during the BBQ was absolutely great. Very cheerful and fun personality. The dinner was delicious. Finally, the starry night was unforgettable

Sunset experience, accompanied with wine, was out of this world. Followed by BBQ dinner which was delicious and had Kangaroo, as the local option, along with the more traditional BBQ meats chicken, steak and shrimp. There were side dishes, more wine, beers and juice. The stars were amazing and the Star glazing chat was nice. At the dinner table you get to mingle with Australian and International tourists which makes the whole experience even more rich. The only draw back for me was that I wanted a longer Star glazing chat since it was one of the reasons why I went out in the middle of Australia to experience, beside exploring Uluru.

This is still a must tour for anyone interested in the outdoors, stars, constellations and good food.

Location was very good for the sunset viewing, but the experience was let down a little by the quality of the food.

The tour was well organised and the staff friendly, however I did feel a little like I was being herded on and off the bus. The food was okay but expensive for the quality. The experience was somewhat marred by the rain.
