Uluru restaurant rated highest in Northern Territory

Uluru outdoor restaurant Tali Wiru has been awarded a Chef Hat in the 2024 Australian Good Food Guide, making it the highest-rated dining experience in the Northern Territory.

The native and Indigenous gastronomic adventure in the spiritual heart of Australia is the only entirely outdoor dining experience in Australia to be recognised with Chef Hat status.

Australian Good Food Guide says Tali Wiru’s unique blend of modern Australian with Indigenous and native flavours represents “food quite out of the ordinary”. 

Tali Wiru – which means “beautiful dune” in local Pitjantjatjara language – is a five-hour dining experience by Ayers Rock Resort that is limited to 20 guests per evening and offers a memorable cultural experience.

“There is nothing quite like Tali Wiru in all of Australia, and we’re incredibly proud of the culinary team at Ayers Rock Resort who bring this magical experience to life each evening with professionalism and passion,” says Matt Cameron-Smith, CEO of Voyages Indigenous Tourism Australia.

“Tali Wiru is a feast for all the senses and a must-do for lovers of great food and fine wine.

“If it’s not on your bucket list, now is the time to start planning a gastronomic adventure to Uluru.”

Australian Good Food Guide Chef Hats have been awarded in Australia since 1982. There are six attributes comprising the judging process: ingredients, taste, presentation, technique, value and consistency.

“Australia is blessed with an incredibly diverse dining scene, but none speak to the essence of Australian dining quite like Tali Wiru,” says Joseph Steele, national operations manager at Australian Good Food Guide.

“From the ethos of the kitchen to the extraordinary finesse of the plating, the dining excellence at Tali Wiru transcends a culinary experience and becomes a cultural one.

“To say this is a must-do experience underplays the impact a dining experience here has on you – you leave Tali Wiru with a deeper understanding and connection to this wildly pulsing land.”
