The Uluru is sacred to the Pitjantjatjara. What’s more, the Pitjantjatjara is the Aboriginal people residing in the Central Australian Desert.
The Uluru, or Ayers Rock, is a large sandstone formation in the Northern Territory. Its location is surrounded by springs, waterholes, rock caves as well as ancient paintings.
Field of Light
Bruce Munro’s art installation called Field of Lights is his largest piece. It is also known as Tili Wiru Tjuta Nyakutjaku or ‘looking at lots of beautiful lights’ in local Pitjantjatjara. And if you haven’t seen it yet, then now is your chance as it is until December 31, 2020.
The lights take over the surrounding areas of Uluru. Thousands of colourful lights come to life, surrounding Australia’s most famous rock in a field of light.
If you want to see the installation, now is definitely the best time to do it. There’s nothing quite like spending the upcoming holidays along with your loved ones surrounded by lights as far as the eye can see. Luckily, tours are available for those who wish to see more of the Field of Lights.
If you’re coming from other parts of the country, it is recommended that you book your tickets early to guarantee yourself a spot in the tour as the spaces are limited and the tours sell out fast.
While you’re making arrangements, don’t forget to ensure that you have reserved rooms and booked flights as well as a parking space for your car near the airport for safe keeping. Make the arrangements to see the Uluru in all of its glory.
