Voy­ages Field of Light

Travel Bulletin - - STATE OF THE INDUSTRY -

The launch of the new Field of Light in­ter­ac­tive art in­stal­la­tion at Ay­ers Rock looks set to cre­ate strong de­mand for vis­i­ta­tion to Aus­tralia’s Red Cen­tre. The piece in­volves a mas­sive to­tal of 50,000 so­lar-pow­ered lights spread across the desert, pro­vid­ing an in­trigu­ing new ex­pe­ri­ence for both do­mes­tic and in­ter­na­tional visi­tors alike. That’s not to men­tion busi­ness events, with Uluru con­fer­ence or­gan­is­ers ex­pected to make the most of the stun­ning set­ting. Field of Light is the brain­child of Uk-based Bruce Munro, who has cre­ated the art­work in a num­ber of set­tings around the world. He came up with the idea fol­low­ing a visit to Uluru in 1992 and so it’s very fit­ting that it

has fi­nally been in­stalled at the place which in­spired it in the first place. Field of Light opens to the pub­lic this month and will run for the next year, with Tourism Aus­tralia manag­ing di­rec­tor John O’sullivan telling trav­elbul­letin it will be “one of the most talked about Aus­tralian at­trac­tions around the world”.
