As custodians of the land, Anangu hold the Mala story from Kaltukatjara to Uluru. To share their story from Kaltukatjara to Uluru, RAMUS designed and produced an artistic platform using drones, light and sound to create an immersive storytelling experience.

Voyages Indigenous Tourism Australia will launch a new fully-immersive light and sound show at Ayers Rock Resort in May, combining ancient Anangu storytelling with drone and laser light technology.

Called Wintjiri Wiru, the show will bring to life a chapter of the Mala ancestral story which sits between Kaltukatjara (Docker River) and Uluru, accompanied by a narration in Pitjantjatjara and Yankunytjatjara languages, and a soundtrack with traditional inma recorded with members of the local Anangu community.

The Wintjiri Wiru experience will illuminate the Central Desert with a spectacle of lights, projections and lasers shining on the spinifex and mulga, with more than 1,000 luminous drones taking flight each night to depict aspects of the Mala story

Visitors will be able to view the show on a sustainably-built platform atop a desert dune with panoramic views of both Uluru and Kata Tjuta.

“We are honoured that we can share the cultural importance of the Mala story with our guests, through such an illuminating and captivating experience in the spiritual heart of Australia,” said Matthew Cameron-Smith, CEO of Voyages.

“We hope the Wintjiri Wiru show will nourish visitors’ thirst for a deeper spiritual connection with this very special part of Australia.”
