Uluru Sunrise and Field of Light Half Day Tour
In complete darkness you’ll be able to wander through the pathways that encompass the 50,000 spheres of light in the desert, before making your way up to the Field of Light sunrise viewing area. Sip on tea, coffee or hot chocolate as the first rays of sunlight creep across the landscape.
Internationally acclaimed artist Bruce Munro’s Field of Light, inspired by a trip to Uluru 25 years ago, is installed in a remote desert area within sight of majestic Uluru. It is the largest Field of Light installation to date, with Munro and his team installing more than 50,000 slender stems crowned with radiant frosted glass spheres.
Born in London in 1959, Bruce Munro’s passion for light as a medium began in Australia, where he was inspired by Australia’s natural light and landscape. He is noted for his immersive site-specific installations that employ light to evoke emotional response, often in an outdoor context and on a monumental scale.
Rise early before sunrise to travel the short distance to a desert location overlooking Uluru. Your Driver Guide will provide insights and background into this emotive and unique desert art installation.
Under the cover of darkness you’re invited to wander through the pathways that encompass the 50,000 spheres of light in the desert, before making your way up the hill to the Dune Top viewing area. Watch the amazing transformation of colours and life as the Red Centre awakens, while enjoying tea, coffee or hot chocolate. Then as the first rays of sunlight creep across the desert sky, gaze in awe as the sun rises in the distance behind Uluru, flooding the landscape, including Kata Tjuta behind you, with light.
You’ll have an incredible view through stunning desert landscape as the sun rises over the Red Centre. As the natural light brightens the landscape, the Field of Light will dim for the day. Capture some amazing photos from this unique raised location, which allows you to view both Uluru and Kata Tjuta in all their natural glory.
