Internationally acclaimed artist Bruce Munro's immersive installation, Field of Light Uluru, in Australia, has been extended for a further period and will now remain in place until 31st December 2020.
The exhibition, located at Ayers Rock Resort in Australia, opened on 1st April 2016 and has reportedly ‘exceeded all expectations proving to be a stand-out drawcard to the destination’.
About the Field of Light Uluru
The exhibition 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 nine 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.
Visitors can enjoy the field in a number of ways: a Field of Light Pass which includes transfers; a Star Pass which 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.
Between 22nd October and 24th March each year, guests can also enjoy Mayu Wiru, meaning 'beautiful flavour' in local Pitjantjatjara (the Aboriginal people of the Central Australian desert). This premium experience for a maximum of 16 guests combines a gourmet menu celebrating the ancient flavours of Indigenous Australia with a private escorted tour through Field of Light.
Pre-booking Field of Light experiences before arrival is recommended.
Tourism Australia MD, John O'Sullivan welcomed the decision to extend the exhibition until the end of December 2020. He commented: “Field of Light has been a remarkable success and there's clearly still significant demand amongst people both here in Australia and overseas to make the journey to Uluru to see what is unquestionably one of world's most spectacular and immersive exhibitions.”
