NORTHERN TERRITORY DIARY NOTES
A comprehensive guide to upcoming events in the Northern Territory.
Field of Light Uluru
More than 50,000 illuminated stems create internationally acclaimed English artist Bruce Munro’s incredible Field of Light installation, which covers an area equivalent to four football fields against the backdrop of Uluru. More than 380 kilometres of optical fibre were used to create the artwork, which sprawls across 49,000 square metres and is powered by 36 portable solar panels. A Field of Light pass costs $39 and includes coach transfers from Ayers Rock Resort to the site, but there are also options to enjoy the experience with sparkling wine and canapés, a three-course buffet dinner, at sunrise, or from the back of a camel.
