Another wonderful day in Uluru visiting the rock and catching if from different angles, lights and colours and then the joy of yet another amazing sunset in the desert – every night is stunning but last night was particularly lovely as there were some clouds in the sky causing a vast expanse of colour and drama over 30 blissful minutes.
Love being here again. It’s one of those places that is even better than you expect it to be – and those are rare.
Next stop Darwin.
Awe inducing Uluru – somewhere everyone should try and visit once
Sunset in Uluru June 18, 2017
The field of Light designed by British light installation artist Bruce Munro was an amazing vision. 50,000 separate light rods covering the equivalent of 4 soccer fields and completely solar powered appeared as if placed by sprites as dusk fell and darkness took over. They were different heights and different colours and changed colours very subtly. The whole effect was quite beautiful and we were able to stroll through the fields once it was totally dark to really appreciate the effect. It was spectacular but like the equally spectacular natural show of stars in the sky it is very hard to capture the overall effect on camera. One of those things you have to remember best in your head but I had a go.

And after seeing a wonderful night time of lights, I woke up to yet another spectacular show of nature as the sun rose over the desert.
Staying at Desert Gardens Hotel and this is the view that greeted me when I checked into my room. It’s been six years since I last visited but I’ve never forgotten how truly awesome and humbling this area is. So I’m really excited to be back. Tonight we’re off to see the art installation Field of Light by Bruce Munro which has been so successful that it has been extended by a year and is a key reason for my visit.
Now off for a pre Field of Light drink with Emma.
Uluru always impressive – this is an 3.30pm
