Have you heard of the Field of Light Uluru?

The Field of Light Uluru is a solar-powered installation hosted by Ayres Rock resort near Uluru. It's in the Red Centre and you add it to a few of our tours. The Field of Light is an optional experience and costs $42 per adult and $30 per child 5-15 years and can be added during the booking process on any of our Uluru Tours below.

The Field of Light is all solar-powered it has 50,000 frosted-glass spheres cover 49,000 square meters of the red desert.

As visitors explore the work, which looks like a field of futuristic flowers blooming between tufts of spinifex, they’re enveloped by choreographed waves of color that artist Bruce Munro toned down so it didn’t out-do the spectacle of the star-spangled night sky.

Bruce Munro the British artist conceived the idea at Uluru in 1992 but it wasn’t until 2004 that Field of Light first materialized at both London’s Victoria & Albert Museum and in Munro’s own backyard in south-west England.

His evocative backyard installation of 15,000-plus stems of light illuminating a 10-acre field of clover struck such a chord that Field of Light has since dazzled visitors at sites across the United Kingdom, the United States, and Mexico.

As part of Ayers Rock Resort’s commitment to arts and culture, which includes staging once-in-a-lifetime experiences, it’s hosting the biggest Field of Light installation to date at the place that inspired it - Uluru.

In keeping with the Northern Territory desert’s vast scale, Munro and his team installed more than 50,000 slender stems crowned with radiant frosted-glass spheres.

The solar-powered installation can be seen until December 2010.

After being collected from a location close to your campsite you will be transferred to the Field of Light. Enjoy a walk through this incredible light display at your own pace before being transferred back to our campsite. The exhibition, aptly named Tili Wiru Tjuta Nyakutjaku or ‘looking at lots of beautiful lights’ in local Pitjantjatjara is Bruce Munro’s largest work to date. Overwhelming in size, covering more than seven football fields, it invites immersion in its fantasy garden of 50,000 spindles of light, the stems breathing and swaying through a sympathetic desert spectrum of ochre, deep violet, blue and gentle white.
