Field of Light Uluru to extend its stay indefinitely

Bruce Munro’s immersive installation Field of Light Uluru has been extended indefinitely from its previous close date at the end of 2020.

The award-winning exhibition located at Ayers Rock Resort opened in 2016 to critical acclaim and has proven to be a stand-out drawcard to the destination, attracting more than 450,000 visitors to date.

“Field of Light Uluru allows people to experience the destination in a way that is unexpected and we are still seeing incredible demand, with guests noting that the installation is a key element of their stay,” said Voyages CEO Grant Hunt.

“Travellers are increasingly seeking experiences that transcend the superficial, that offer meaning, surprise and add great depth to the memory bank. Extending Field of Light Uluru will allow even more visitors to enjoy this extraordinary immersive artwork.

“Today marks one month until the Uluru Climb closure, and we know that the Field of Light is an enduring way for guests to enjoy the destination.”

A $1 million refurbishment of the installation overseen by the artist has just been completed, with each individual stem of light and all the fibre optic cabling replaced.

“I am truly honoured that the Field of Light will remain at Uluru,” said Munro.

“The ancient landscape of the Red Centre continues to inspire my thoughts, feelings and ideas that shape my life and work.”

Minister for Tourism Simon Birmingham welcomed the decision.

“Beyond the natural wonder that is Uluru, this unique experience is a major reason why thousands of domestic and international tourists continue to flock to the Northern Territory each year,” Birmingham said.

“It is great to see that this successful and beautiful exhibition will remain a major visitor drawcard and I congratulate Bruce Munro and Ayers Rock Resort on their continued contribution to Uluru’s future tourism sustainment.”
