What exactly is the Field of Light? Well just imagine you are in a field of tulip like flowers 🌷⚘🌷 But you aren’t in the Netherlands, you are in Uluru – the middle of the Australian Outback!
Now also imagine, these fields are the size of more than seven football fields and when you are standing in them it is at night…
But can you even see these flowers if it’s at night? In this case, yes!.. as these “flowers” are actually colour changing light stems!
The Field of Light is an art installation by Bruce Munro.
It features 50,000 flower like light stems, spread across over 49,000 square meters of outback plains. It is his largest installation to date.
Along with being the largest installation, it is also the first one to be solar powered. Putting all that daytime Australian outback sun to good use!
Another environment friendly factor is, when it finishes up in December 2020, all the materials will be recycled and reused in future installations.
The whole installation weighs 15 tonnes and uses over 380 km of optical fibre. It was all brought to Uluru from London on 32 Qantas flights.
Walking amongst the coloured lights, whilst taking in all the stars above is a pretty magical experience. Definitely worth a look if you find yourself in the middle of Australia.
Field of Light has proven to be quite a popular experience. It seems people love the idea of walking in a night time field of rainbow lights!
So to avoid missing out on the experience, book your tickets in advance. You can get more information and your tickets HERE
