Kings Canyon Resort is celebrating the arrival of clear autumn skies and cooler temperatures with the re-launch of ‘Under a Desert Moon’, its signature outback dining experience.
Priced at AUD$99 and running from May 30 to October 31, Under a Desert Moon offers guests a gourmet dinner for two, with sparkling wine and canapés as the sun sets, followed by a four-course menu by firelight.
The menu will showcase a variety of modern Australian cuisine beginning with canapés such as braised crocodile bound in a honey mustard aioli or roasted asparagus spears wrapped in emu prosciutto.
This will be followed by a four-course menu, including sweet potato, ginger and coconut soup with fresh damper, barbecued Moreton Bay Bugs cooked over the open fire, mountain pepper crusted beef fillet followed by vanilla and lemon myrtle panna cotta with a lime mango puree.
The Under a Desert Moon experience will be hosted at the central fire pit at Kings Canyon Resort, offering an intimate setting with no more than six couples dining on any one night. This is the perfect way to relax after a day spent exploring Kings Canyon and Watarrka National Park.
“Kings Canyon is a beautiful destination, however the magic really starts when the sun sets, lighting up the deep reds and ochres of the Canyon range,” said Kings Canyon Resident Manager, Nigel Heath.
“The silence and space out here is breathtaking, and this is our way of rewarding guests with a very intimate and romantic special evening to mark the end of a day in the Canyon.”
The Outback BBQ and Grill at Kings Canyon Resort has also re-opened for the winter season.
Earlier this year, Kings Canyon Resort narrowly escaped being destroyed by a major bushfire.
