NEW DATES: 1 & 2 April 2022

Update as of 18th July 2021

Unfortunately, due to Rachael Beck and Michael Cormick being situated in NSW and the current uncertainty of the COVID situation in NSW, we had to make the decision to postpone the upcoming Under the Stars with the Stars scheduled for 23rd, 24th and 25th July 2021.

But great news!  We have new dates! 

Under the Stars with The Stars is now being held on Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd April 2022... the weather will hopefully be a little more friendly at the time of year too!

We thank you for holding onto your tickets, we will be in contact via email to confirm what date is suitable for you. The reservations team will be in contact with you to re-book your accommodation.

We thank you for your patience this is a trying time for musical events and the tourism industry and we look forward to seeing you in April 2022!

Thank you

Join us for an evening of fine dining and world-class entertainment 

under the stars in Outback South Australia!

Arkaroola Wildlife Sanctuary together with Outback PA Hire presents an Intimate Evening of Fine Dining & Entertainment “Under the Stars with the Stars” at one of the Sanctuary’s most spectacular water holes!

  • For two nights only
  • Limited to 150 people per night
  • Dress code: Black Tie
  • 3-course fine dining experience with Champagne on arrival

Located 600km north of Adelaide in the ruggedly spectacular northern Flinders Ranges, this 610sq km multi award-winning Wilderness Sanctuary is an inspiring destination for artists, aviators, astronomers, adventure bikers, birdwatchers, bushwalkers, four-wheel drive adventurers, geologists and just about anybody with a sense of adventure and a quest for knowledge.  

In a first for the sanctuary Australian theatrical stars Rachael Beck and Michael Cormick will be accompanied by Internationally acclaimed Musical Director and pianist Kym Purling, and the sensational Sarah Straschko for three intimate performances over three big nights!

Set against the backdrop of Stubbs Waterhole, guests will be greeted with sparkling wine while taking in the majestic sunset.   Guests will then be escorted to their seats to commence the first of three courses, delicately prepared on- site by the Arkaroola Wilderness Sanctuary chefs all while being entertained by world-class musicians… for a night unlike any other!

Rachael Beck

You may know Rachael from her days as “Samantha” on the Aussie sitcom Hey Dad, but where Rachael really shines is on the live theatre stage.   She has starred in Australian stage productions of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast as Belle, opposite Hugh Jackman, Les Misérables, The Sound of Music, Cabaret and Singing in the Rain.  Rachel also released her debut solo album “This Girl” in 2014 to huge acclaim.  

Michael Cormick

Theatrical superstar, Michael Cormick has performed in some of the most well known musical productions here at home in Australia and on the theatre capital The West End.  From the lead role of Raoul in Phantom of the Opera to Cats, Les Misérables, Into the Woods, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Grease and his award-winning performance as the Beast in Beauty and the Beast.

Kym Purling

Adelaide-raised Kym Purling is a huge name on the international music circuit.  With accolades that fill a Wikipedia page, this man is one of the most accomplished pianists and composers on Australian soil.  From touring with Natalie Cole, The Mills Brothers, Harry Connick Jr, Engelbert Humperdinck (and many, many more) to Broadway Musicals including Miss Saigon and 42nd Street, plus has featured on countless albums.  

Sarah Straschko

Hailing from Gawler, many of you would have had the chance to witness the angelic voice of Sarah Straschko.

Sarah's reputation as a charismatic and talented live performer has seen her travel to far parts of South Australia and also the east coast.

We are big fans of Sarah and are delighted she will be joining us to open the evening for Rachel and Michael.

We are beyond thrilled to bring you this once in a lifetime opportunity to experience the musical prowess of such acclaimed performers and musicians, complemented with fine dining that is sure to tantalise your tastebuds at Arkaroola for “Under the Stars with the Stars!”
