Field of Lights

When my daughter Caitlin called to say she was coming home for uni break, we knew we had to do a road trip to Yulara to see the Field of Lights and we were not disappointed.

Bruce Munro, The British artist conceived the idea at Uluru in 1992

Field of Lights 250,000 stems crowned with frosted-glass spheres.

Several packages are available to view the lights, from a very affordable $35 each to the luxurious 3 course bush tucker dinner.

We went for the middle of the road – $75 Field of Light Star Pass which included a welcome drink, cocktails and canapes.

After watching the sunset from the viewing platform and light flowers begin to bloom below, guests are invited to walk down and enjoy the lights close up.

If you’re an avid photographer and plan to take your tripod (like Steve did) be careful to keep the legs away from the wires as you can easily damage the connection and it is a trip hazard.

We spent an hour walking amongst the lights taking photos and marveling at just how beautiful it was when we were called back to board the bus and return to our camp site. Maybe I spent too much time talking to the guides, but I would have loved another 30 minutes to soak up the atmosphere.

Definately put this on your bucket list to do before the end of March 2017!
