Uluru is set to light up for another season of the internationally acclaimed artist Bruce Munro’s immersive installation, Field of Light Uluru.
The sell-out global phenomenon has been so popular, that it is extended to a second season, and will now continue to delight guests until 31 March 2018.
Centred at Ayers Rock Resort in the spiritual heart of Australia, the award-winning exhibition opened to critical acclaim in April and has exceeded all expectations, proving to be a stand-out drawcard to the destination.
Voyages Executive General Manager Sales, Marketing and Distribution, Ray Stone, said “since opening almost 100,000 guests have been deeply moved by the Field of Light, it’s hard not to be. I am delighted to announce the extension as an extraordinary opportunity for guests to enjoy not only the spiritual nature of the destination, but experience it in a unique and mesmerising way.”
Aptly named Tili Wiru Tjuta Nyakutjaku or ‘looking at lots of beautiful lights’ in local Pitjantjatjara, Field of Light Uluru is Munro’s largest work to date, with more than 50,000 slender stems crowned with radiant frosted-glass spheres over an area the size of four football fields. It is also the artist’s first work to be illuminated entirely through solar power. The spheres, connected via illuminated optical fibre, bloom as darkness falls. Pathways draw viewers into the artwork, which comes to life under a sky brilliant with stars.
Even Tourism Australia’s CEO John O’Sullivan rates the exhibition, saying “anyone fortunate enough to have walked amongst those 50,000 magical illuminated stems, Field of Light undoubtedly qualifies as one of the most amazing exhibitions in Australia today.”
To celebrate the announcement of a second season, Voyages has released stunning Virtual Reality and 360 footage of the Field of Light, where people all over the world can be transported to the spiritual heart of Australia and into the Field of Light, all from the comfort of their own environment.
Guests can enjoy the field in a number of ways – a Field of Light Pass includes transfers, a Star Pass includes transfers as well as sparkling wine and canapes, and for those wanting a special evening under the stars there is A Night at Field of Light dining experience that includes transfers and guests can also arrive via helicopter or camel for an additional charge. Pre-booking Field of Light experiences before arrival is strongly recommended.
