Field of Light Present - March 2018

Field of Light has been extended for a second season, running until 31 March 2018. 


Bruce Munro's internationally acclaimed art installation Field of Light, set glittering at the base of Uluru, has been extended for another season. The epic art piece will now be on show until 31 March 2018 giving you plenty of time to start planning your dream trip to the Red Centre.

Set in the heart of the Northern Territory, the exhibition, aptly named Tili Wiru Tjuta Nyakutjaku or ‘looking at lots of beautiful lights’ in local Pitjantjatjara sees more than 50,000 solar-powered stems light up at sunset and glow throughout the night. In keeping with the desert’s vast scale this is Munro's largest Field of Light installation to date, with the brightly coloured light stems covering an area the size of four football fields. 

The award-winning exhibition opened in April 2017 and has exceeded all expectations, proving to be a stand-out drawcard to the destination.
