Mayu Wiru, a new fine-dining experience for guests of Ayers Rock Resort, launches this month as a seasonal replacement to the hugely successful Tali Wiru dune-top dining experience, which closes over summer, from October 16 to March 31. Mayu Wiru means “beautiful flavour” in local Pitjantjatjara and has been designed for a maximum of 16 guests in conjunction with Field of Light viewings. The evening begins with champagne and bush tuckerinspired canapes at a lookout within the grounds of Sails in the Desert hotel, followed by a four-course table d’hote menu inspired by indigenous ingredients and served with matched wines in the resort’s private dining room. Guests are taken to a desert platform for a nightcap and star talk on the southern night sky, then a 30-minute escorted walk through installation artist Bruce Munro’s Field of Light. Mayu Wiru will run daily from October 22 to March 24. From $295 a person (children must be aged at least 15); includes return hotel transport, full menu, matched wines and entertainment. Voyages Ayers Rock Resort covers myriad accommodation options including the recently refurbished Desert Gardens Hotel, where top-category guestrooms have views of Uluru. More: ayersrockresort.com.au.
