Let there be light

Holiday with Kids - - Northern Territory -

As dark­ness falls over Aus­tralia’s spir­i­tual heart­land, Field of Light, or ‘Tili Wiru Tjuta Nyakut­jaku’, lights up the desert at the base of Uluru. So pop­u­lar are the 50,000 ra­di­ant glass spheres that cover an area the size of seven foot­ball fields that the ex­hibit has been ex­tended to 31 De­cem­ber 2020.

Uluru doesn’t have the mo­nop­oly on light shows, with Alice Springs, set to daz­zle at Par­rtjima – A Fes­ti­val in Light, from 28 Septem­ber un­til 7 Oc­to­ber 2018. The free pub­lic event is the first authen­tic Indige­nous light fes­ti­val of its kind and show­cases the old­est con­tin­u­ous cul­ture on Earth with the iconic Macdon­nell Ranges as a back­drop.
