Event:
Glam it up at Adelaide's most scenic outback dinner dance
The twentieth anniversary of one of Australia's premier outback gala dinners is an event not to be missed. With champagne glasses bubbling as the sun sets over the majestic Wilpena Pound, could there be a better place for this memorable occasion to "celebrate our journey" and become a part of history.

Wilpena Under the Stars


The Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) Wilpena Under the Stars will be held on Saturday 21st February in a specially convened marquee a couple of kilometres outside of the Wilpena Pound Resort. An evening of glamour and sparkle awaits at the base of the rugged and spectacular Wilpena Pound where guests will experience one of the most magical sunsets in the South Australian outback.

Basking in the spectacular beauty of the Flinders Ranges as you wine, dine and dance under a kaleidoscope of stars will make this a truly memorable and unique event.

Tickets to this annual RFDS dinner-dance fundraiser go on sale at 8.30am on Monday 1st December. In recent years tickets have sold out within the first week, so it pays to get in quick and book your tickets or book a table. A standby list is maintained, but the value and the sparkle of the event means that booking cancellations are a rarity.

The iconic RFDS Wilpena Under the Stars bush event has become an annual tradition in the Flinders Ranges with towns and communities joining together to make this a truly unique open air black tie event in the middle of the bush. While the entertainment and the chefs come from afar, all the catering and waiting staff are locals, and all grateful of the opportunity to participate in this event.

Come along and experience one of the most magical sunsets in the outback as you indulge in a special 20th Anniversary three course menu, complemented by superb Jacob's Creek reserve wines and finely crafted ales from South Australia's own Coopers Brewery.

And as day blends into night and the stars light up the evening sky, it's time to kick up the red dirt and dance the night away with friends old and new, in a truly spectacular setting under the outback glow.

Tickets are $200 per person which includes dinner, refreshments and local shuttle bus to and from event. The shuttle buses leave Hawker, Rawnsley Park, Arkaba, Willow Springs and of course Wilpena Pound from around 6pm, with all arriving at the outdoor venue around 630pm. Buses then depart shortly after midnight, and return you to your accommodation. Alternatively for those wishing to drive, a car park is located close to the venue just outside Wilpena Pound.

The RFDS Wilpena Under the Stars is supported by major sponsors Alinta Energy, Ahrens, Lucas Group and Heathgate. Proceeds from the event benefit the RFDS capital-raising program to fund the purchase of replacement aircraft and medical equipment.
