Tali Wiru

As our fabulous indulgence while at Yulara, James and I went on the Tali Wiru dinner. This involved being driven out to a dune top to drink champagne while watching the sunset and then be served a haute cuisine meal under the stars. It was fabulous.

The views of Uluru and Kata Tjuka were spectacular, and the champagne was French. The canapes were also delicious, especially the gorgonzola and busy honey tarts. And the didgeridoo playing was pretty good as well.

There were only six of us for the dinner – three couples – and we each got our own table under the spectacular full moon.

The food was fabulous, particularly considering it was being cooked in a kitchen in the middle of nowhere. My barramundi with macadamia and lemon myrtle crust was particularly delicious. It was accompanied by generous amounts of well chosen wines – the Adelaide Hills were particularly favoured for the whites.

We had a talk about the stars before dessert and then cognac and indigenous culture after dessert before heading back to Yulara.

It was one of those rare once-in-a-lifetime experiences – surrounded by 360 degree dessert vistas which were particularly spectacular at sunset, with a giant full moon, a lovely dinner which was of the quality and privacy of the best Australian restaurants and to see one’s own shadow from an amazing full moon. Stunning.
