Ayers Rock Resort…

Dine under the stars...

Dine under the stars…

There are over 65 tours and activities to explore in and around Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park and Ayers Rock Resort. Dine under the sparkling night sky at the award-winning Sounds of Silence. Ride a camel across the desert dunes. Hop on a Harley, or embark on a base walk of Uluru (Ayers Rock).

There is even more reason to visit Uluru in 2016: a once-in-lifetime experience, Bruce Munro’s Field of Light Uluru, will make its Australian debut.

The monumental solar-powered exhibition will see Bruce Munro and his team install more than 50,000 slender stems crowned with frosted-glass spheres that will bloom as darkness falls.

Field of Light Uluru – from 1 April 2016 to 31 March 2017

Pathways will draw viewers into the installation, which will come to life under the vast outback sky brilliant with stars.

The 12-month solar-powered exhibition will open to the public on April 1, 2016 and will remain open until March 31, 2017.
