From 1 April 2016 to 31 March 2017, Ayers Rock Resort will play host to its biggest event yet: Bruce Munro’s Field of Light Uluru. This monumental solar-powered art installation can be incorporated into all meetings at Ayers Rock Resort, home of the world-class Uluru Meeting Place, with three different experiences that are sure to dazzle delegates.
The Field of Light exhibition will illuminate a remote desert area within sight of majestic Uluru with more than 50,000 slender stems crowned with frosted-glass spheres that will bloom as darkness falls over Australia’s spiritual heartland. Pathways will draw viewers into the installation, which will come to life under the vast outback sky. It is the first time the celebrated artist Bruce Munro has brought his installation to Australia – it was during a visit to Uluru that he conceived the idea for Field of Light.
With Field of Light Sunrise, delegates will be transferred from their hotel to a desert location overlooking Uluru. A host will provide insights and background to the art installation, after which delegates are invited to walk through and interact with Field of Light. From the Dune Top viewing area, they can watch the amazing transformation of colours and life as the desert awakens, while enjoying a hot coffee/tea and pastries. The two hour experience is priced at $55 per person for a minimum of 40 guests and includes a 45 minute walk through the Field of Light, coffee/tea and pastries and return coach transfers from all hotels with an option to extend to a sit-down cooked hot and cold buffet breakfast.
A Night at Field of Light is a 4 ½ hour once in a lifetime experience beginning with a transfer to a remote desert location where delegates will enjoy canapes and chilled sparkling wine as the sun sets over Uluru. As darkness falls and the coloured lights of Field of Light come to life, guests will enjoy a three-course bush tucker inspired buffet menu. The evening includes a didgeridoo and local Indigenous performance, as well as a host providing insights and background to Field of Light, before delegates are invited to immerse themselves and walk through the installation. After dinner, guests will return to the Dune Top viewing area to enjoy a sweet treat, hot chocolate or port whilst viewing the illuminated installation in the darkness. This experience is priced at $235 per person for a minimum of 80 guests for exclusive use, and a maximum of 120 guests.
Alternatively, the Star Pass is ideal for an exclusive use cocktail event prior to dinner. Priced at $75 per person, this option includes return bus transfers, time to explore the Field of Light, and finishes with delegates enjoying sparkling wine and canapes on an elevated platform, with panoramic views of the installation.
“We understand that event organisers are always looking for something different – an edge that will thrill their delegates and guests – and the Field of Light Uluru offers that extra element to an already intriguing destination, “said Voyages Chief Executive Officer, Andrew Williams.
