Sounds of Silence with Field of Light (A Night at Field of Light)

As you savour the scrumptious spread and sit back with your choice of drinks, be it wine or beer, tea or coffee, this is one of the highlights of the evening. Before you, the lights from 50,000 coloured glass spheres illuminate the outback and it is enlightening to hear the local expert decode the glittering spectacle up above. 

And when it is time to step into the Field of Light, prepare to see up close the awe-inspiring art installation as you walk the pathways that lead you on among the rhythms and colours that spread before you. This is the kind of exhibition that can be witnessed only at Uluru and that gets as unique as the other local experiences like listening to a didgeridoo performance or feasting on a bush tucker spread. 

The Night at the Field of Light comes to a spectacular culmination as you stand atop the dunes to marvel at the brilliance of the illuminated sight below. 

This tour lasts approximately 4.5 hours and transfers are once again ensured. The cost of the package is $280/adult and $140/child.
