Uluru - Kata Tjuta awaits you..
Immerse yourself in one of the world's most timeless and beautiful natural wonders - Uluru and Kata Tjuta. For tens of thousands of years the traditional owners, the Anangu, have cared for this land and to them Uluru and Kata Tjuta has always been a special place.
It's a living place, the ancient stories are alive and so is the raw and beautiful landscape around you.
But the iconic curves of Uluru are just the beginning, there are more than 65 different tours and experiences in and around the National Park and a variety of accommodation options to suit any budget.
One of the experiences that has proven to be a stand-out draw card to the destination is the global phenomenon 'Field of Light' by internationally acclaimed UK artist Bruce Munro. Uluru is the original inspirational birthplace for the concept, with more than 50,000 slender stems crowned with frosted-glass spheres that bloom as darkness falls under a sky filled with brilliant stars. Spanning the size of four football fields, the award-winning exhibition opened in April 2017 and has exceeded expectations and has now been extended until 31 December 2020.
With many ways to view this once-in-a-lifetime experience, 'A Night at Field of Light' is truly a magical place to start.
This exclusive dinning experience combines the award-winning 'Sounds of Silence' dinner with the Field of Light exhibition. The evening begins with canapes and chilled sparkling wine whilst taking in the magnificent views of Uluru at sunset. As darkness begins to fall, the rhythms of colour awaken to light up the landscape and you are escorted to your desert dining room under a blanket of brilliant stars.
Dinner is an exceptional three-course affair infused with the unique flavours of the Australian bush. The menu has been carefully crafted to showcase Indigenous flavours that have been used for thousands of years. As desserts and a cheeky little glass of port are served and the sounds of the didgeridoo fade, you settle in and enjoy the engaging resident star talker while he decodes the Southern night sky.
After your sensational dinning experience you're invited to immerse yourself in the Field of Light, its pathways glistening softly with rhythms of coloured light, beckoning you to explore.
Bruce Munro's passion for immersive large-scale light-based installations began in Australia and landed in his sketchbook after visiting Uluru in 1992. It took 40 people six weeks to plant the stems of light and is the first time that the installation is solar charged. The colour palette is inspired by the raw colours of the surrounding desert.
"I saw in my mind a landscape of illuminated stems that, like the dormant seed in a dry desert, quietly waiting until darkness falls, under a blazing blanket of southern stars, to bloom with gentle rhythms of light." - Bruce Munro
