Ceremony & Reception Sites


Ceremony Sites


Uluru Lookout - The Uluru Lookout is situated on a dune top offering an ideal backdrop overlooking Uluru and Kata Tjuta. For summer weddings the perfect time for your ceremony is at sunset or sunrise, as the temperature can get extremely hot during the day. For winter weddings a sunset wedding is also ideal, however guests will need to bring warm clothing due to the temperature dropping very quickly once the sun goes down.


Reception Sites


Sounds of Silence - Dine under the stars with nothing but the beautiful expanse of desert and majestic Uluru for kilometres around. Your Sounds of Silence experience begins with enjoying canapés and sparkling wine while the sun sets over Uluru. As darkness falls, join your table for an unforgettable bush tucker inspired dining experience, cultural dance and didgeridoo performances and a star talk under the outback sky. We highly recommend this dining experience as a must-do during your visit to Ayers Rock Resort.

For groups of 1-44 guests, a location hire fee applies for exclusive use. Public sites are available for smaller group sizes (i.e. non-exclusive).
For groups of 45-300, no additional location fee applies for exclusive use.


'Tali Wiru’ An intimate dining experience under the outback sky, with a focus on fine food and wine. Instead of walls, this open-air restaurant has magnificent views of Uluru and the distant domes of Kata Tjuta, and for unique ambience there’s the stillness of the desert at night. For an exclusive Tali Wiru dining experience, a location fee will apply. For groups of 13 people or more, Tali Wiru must be booked exclusively.

Maximum 20 guests. 

Ceremonies can only be conducted on the Tali Wiru site if exclusive use has been booked.
Please note: No speeches and formalities can be performed on the public sites (i.e. for exclusive site bookings only).


Black Tie and SandshoesFor an exclusive formal dinner, Black Tie and Sandshoes is an elegant affair amongst the untamed natural beauty of a secluded desert location. Guests dress in formal attire, accessorised with sand shoes. As darkness falls, join your table for an unforgettable bush tucker inspired dining experience, cultural dance and didgeridoo performances and a star talk under the outback sky.

A location hire fee applies for groups of 1-44 guests. For groups of 45-300 guests, no additional location hire fee applies.
