Uluru Field of Light Sunrise Tour with Hot Drinks & Biscuits

1. Uluru Field of Light Sunrise Tour with Hot Drinks & Biscuits

Rise early to travel the short distance to a desert location overlooking Uluru. Your driver/guide will provide insights and the background to the art installation. Under the cover of darkness, wander through the pathways that encompass the 50,000 spheres of light in the desert, before making your way up the hill to the Dune Top viewing area. Watch the amazing transformation of colours and life as the desert awakens, while enjoying tea, coffee or hot chocolate. Then as the first rays of sunlight creep across the desert sky, gaze in awe as the sun rises in the distance behind Uluru, flooding the landscape, including Kata Tjuta behind you, with light. You’ll have an incredible view through stunning desert landscape as the sun rises over the Red Centre. As the natural light brightens the landscape, the Field of Light will dim for the day. Capture some amazing photos from this unique raised location, which allows you to view both Uluru and Kata Tjuta in all their natural glory.

The FoL tour was well organised and efficient including a quick trip to the site and quick overview and then walking around the installation for around half an hour followed by hot drinks to watch the sunrise. Great seeing it at sunrise to see the installation in the dark followed by sunrise and the morning view of Uluṟu - and a lot less people than the evening tours we heard. The hot drinks and biscuits are basic, but you’re there for the view! Around 2 hours door to door.

Worth the early morning rise to catch the Field of Lights in its glory. Tush the greeting guide and host was helpful. Vinnie our driver was the best - great sense of humour, takes fantastic photos Instgram ready, lots of info about the installation. The Lights were impressive as an artwork as well as an engineering feat.

Everything went very smoothly. All activities were very much enjoyed by myself in my seventies and 9 year old grandson.

Loved when you first stand on the Sand dunes and look over at the lights.

Great commentary, on time, very informative, friendly tour guides
