Under a Desert Moon

Imagine the romance of a table for two in a wilderness setting under a canopy of the Southern Night sky. The only light comes from the moon and the flickering glow of the fire. The only sound is soft music intertwined with the whispering of the breeze through the Desert Oak trees and the crackling flames.

Enjoy a glass of sparkling wine and canapés followed by a 5-course dinner and wine pairing (at an additional cost). Under a Desert Moon is exclusive to Kings Canyon. It is a unique outback dining experience with a menu focusing on the fresh local produce of Australia.

Under a Desert Moon operates on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday only for $169 per person with matching wine at an additional cost of $49 per person.
