Hi All,

Travelling out to Uluru in June for one leg of the pending honeymoon and wondered if anyone had done an SOS dinner?

What was it like? Good value?

Regards

Hi BaznKaz,
I've not done it but a friend of mine has.

She reckons it's absolutely fantastic.

That's from someone who doesn't like travelling anywhere more isolated than the outdoor car park at Westfield.

Funny bugger she is, told me after the dinner that "stars go from horizon to horizon, I never knew that!"

We did a couple of years ago. It is fantastic and I didn't care how much it cost but it was a fair price. Nike!!! (Just do it.) Ian

Thanks All,

Sounds like a done deal.

Hey Hairy,

great cheap option! Probably have to do that one without the girl.


All the best,

Baz

Did it in 2007 - was absolutely awesome - highlight of our trip.

Take warm clothes, or sit near a heater.

I'll second the affirmative replies.

Probably overpriced, but if they still have the bloke who gives a rundown on the solar system it makes the night.

Great atmosphere, great night.

Bazwah,

We attended the SOS dinner several years ago. It's a fabulous night and not to be missed. Plenty of food and wine and the port at the end of the evening to warm the soul.

The talk given by the astrologer caps it all off!!!

If you are visiting Kings Canyon, can I suggest an alternative offered by Voyages resort there. They have a dinner out in open air for 5 couples only ( good honeymoon material) seated around a big fire pit. You have your own hostess/waitress who looks after the couples very well as well as your own chef who comes out and introduces the food and answers any questions you have about it.

We chose this over SOS as there are no crowds and as we were staying at the resort (didn't see the point of camping in a caravan park) we were able to walk to the location.

The food and service were excellent. It is one of the best nights out we have had. Cost was I think about $145 each all inclusive.

Cheers

Kevin
