Shimmering at the base of Australia’s sacred Uluru, Field of Light – Tili Wiru Tjuta Nyakutjaku in local Pitjantjatjara – is an epic art installation of 50,000 solar-powered lights that glow from dusk ‘til dawn. Artist Bruce Munro’s traveling spectacle covers an area the size of four football fields until it’s lights-out 1.1.21.
To see the once-in-a-lifetime outdoor exhibit, a variety of ticketed tours and experiences are available through Ayers Rock Resorts. It also offers a full range of lodging including the iconic Sails in the Desert, casual Outback Pioneer Hotel, and the unforgettable Longitude 131°, one of the world’s most extraordinary nature lodges. Featuring unmatched luxury in 15 private tent pavilions, the bucket-list retreat is Australia’s only resort and spa with unobstructed views of the outback’s two World Heritage-listed wonders: Uluru and Kata Tjuta. To get there, the country’s premiere airline, Virgin Australia, offers direct daily flights into Ayers Rock Airport from Sydney.
