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.
