Field of Lights

New in 2016 The Field of Light art installation by internationally acclaimed artist Bruce Munro, is coming to the place that inspired it - Uluru. The largest Field of Light installation to date, more than 50,000 stems crowned with frosted-glass spheres will bloom as darkness falls over Australia’s spiritual heartland. The solar-powered installation, within sight of majestic Uluru, opens 1 April 2016.

Guests at Ayers Rock Resort’s four properties can immerse themselves in Munro’s monumental experiential artwork in one of three ways. The entry-level Field of Light Pass includes return bus transfers to the remote site with ample time to experience the artwork. The Field of Light Star Pass includes the above, along with sparkling wine and canapés with panoramic views of the installation from an elevated viewing area to finish. The 4.5-hour A Night at Field of Light includes sparkling wine and canapés at sunset from an elevated viewing area, time to immerse in the artwork and a three-course buffet dinner showcasing native ingredients as well as return bus transfers and introduction by a host.
