Field of Light, Uluru

Spanning over the area of seven football fields, Uluru Field of Light is the largest installation that artist Bruce Munro has ever created. Carrying the name Tili Wiru Tjuta Nyakutjaku (which means looking at lots of beautiful lights), it consists of over 50,000 lights that bring life and colour to the desert.

What started out as a temporary exhibition has been extended indefinitely and you don’t have to worry anymore about missing out. The installation is truly magnificent and it indeed captures the raw beauty of the desert in the precise way that the artist intended to represent it.
