The Field of Light exhibition continues to shine at Uluru, adding another dimension to Australia’s spiritual heart. 

Last month, Voyages Ayers Rock Resort took home the Qantas-supported gong for Excellence in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island Tourism at the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards in Darwin. The company is the force behind the country’s most remarkable outdoor art exhibition, Field of Light, in which 50,000 frosted-glass spheres, mounted on slender stems, light up every night to give your visit to timeless Uluru a whole new dimension. 

The installation by British artist Bruce Munro was slated to conclude at the end of this month but has been extended for another year. And thanks to Voyages’ range of accommodation options – from luxury resort to serviced apartments and camping – everyone’s invited to stay and enjoy the spectacle.

Where to stay 

For luxury travellers 

Sails in the Desert is Voyages’ topnotch option in Australia’s spiritual heart. Make yourself at home in one of the 228 guestrooms spread around the centrally located swimming pool, shaded by soaring white sails.

For families

Recently renovated, the fully serviced Emu Walk Apartments offer one- and two-bedroom options that are ideal if you’re travelling with kids.

For campers

To really immerse yourself in the landscape, pitch a tent at Ayers Rock Campground. There are air-conditioned cabins and sites for campervans, too, if you don’t want to rough it.
