What to do:
Never has an early morning start been more rewarding. The silent morning air that encompasses the desert landscape of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is filled with gasps and amazed ‘ooohs’ and ‘aaahhs’ as the first group to wander through the desert paths are met by four acres of flowing fibre optics lights. With the majestic Uluru in the background, begin to fall into silence as you take in what is truly an unforgettable and life-changing experience. These otherworldly spheres of light are internationally acclaimed artist Bruce Munro’s latest art installation, Field of Light, and his largest to date, with him and his team installing more than 50,000 slender stems crowned with radiant frosted glass spheres in a remote desert area within sight of majestic Uluru.
With the added benefit of car hire included you are free to explore the sights and attractions of the spiritual heart of Australia as you continue to drive the Red Centre Way and experience World Heritage-listed natural wonders such as majestic Uluru. View the dunes of Kata Tjuta against the outback sky and quintessential red dirt, visit the amazing Kings Canyon and Watarrka National Park and immerse yourself in the Aboriginal culture, people and food for a once in a lifetime holiday at your leisure.
