Sounds of Silence, Ayers Rock Australia

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.

Our Sounds of Silence experience begins with canapes and chilled sparkling wine upon a dune top overlooking the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. As the sun sets and darkness falls, we listened to the sound of a didgeridoo and we joined our table of fellow travelers for an unforgettable dining experience.

Their attentive staff offered us a selection of Australian wine and beer while the first course is served at our table. As the night sky twinkles to life, we were welcomed to an interactive chef’s station where we were served our choice from freshly prepared, bush tucker inspired menu incorporating native bush ingredients. 

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.

For just A$234 per adult, we were treated to outback style canapes, a three-course bush tucker inspired buffet, didgeridoo performance, a guided tour of the night sky and return transfers. Our entire experience was approximately 4 hours, transport departs 1 hour before sunset, no available for children 9 years old and under.

Shell Beach, Western Australia

This beautiful snow-white beach is made up of billions of tiny shells up to 10 metres deep and stretching for over 70 kilometres. There is no sand, only shells! On a still day, the ocean at Shell Beach transforms into a palette of the most intense greens and blues – and the water is very salty (hypersaline), making it easy to float even though we aren’t strong swimmers – similar to the Dead Sea in Jordan. 

Rottnest Island Smiling Quokka, Western Australia

The Quokka is the only mammal which is native to Rottnest Island and can be found almost everywhere on the Island. It is mainly nocturnal. This means that it is mostly active at night, preferring to rest or sleep in the shade during the day. The Quokka bounds and hops along the ground although it can climb trees if it needs to. It will sit on its hind legs to look around and will also use its front paws to search for and pick up food. They have become one of the main tourist attractions of Rottnest Island because they have a cute appearance and are easy to see.

Yacht Sailing Experience, Perth Australia

We stayed the night on a yacht parked in one of Perth’s yacht club and sailed our way to Frementle Harbour Port. No visit to Australia will be complete without an early morning trip to its famous seafood markets, where the freshest catch of the day caught by fishermen in the wee hours of the morning can be seen, bought, and if we choose, eaten at restaurants located right by the jetty. And it is the vibrancy of this experience that Fremantle Seafood Market has captured, transporting diners to the sights and sounds of dining in Perth’s famed Fremantle harbour port.

Bubblegum Pink Lakes, Australia

Australia pink lake’s striking pink colour is thanks to the algae that live in the water, Dunaliella salina. When exposed to sunlight, the algae produces beta-carotene, the red pigment found in carrots and other vegies. Thanks to those colour-producing properties, the algae are farmed for use in cosmetics and supplements, and as a natural food dye.
