This wondrous collection of new and existing work has been created by world renowned artist Bruce Munro, which reflect the artist’s experiences of visiting Australia and the Northern Territory. The exhibition is connected by a centralised self-guided path to wander along with each piece intended to inspire interest during the day and hold special significance when illuminated at night. ‘Bruce Munro Tropical Light’ is a free event that can be viewed at your leisure with the best viewing time onwards from 7pm till 10pm daily. The collection of illuminated sculptures is connected by a self-guided path featuring works from six local Darwin artists, creating a 2.5 km trail of art experiences.

For those who don’t know the spectacular Field of Light, the popular tourist attraction is almost exactly what its name implies – a vast field of light covering the overwhelming size of more than seven football fields. The mesmerising scene is made up over 50,000 spindles of light set on swaying stems creating a never-before-seen fantasy garden. As the spindles gently progress through a symphony of desert-inspired colours including traditional ochre, deep violet, bold blue and a gentle white, you experience the Australian outback and Red Centre in, quite literally, a whole new light. This impressive light show mirrors the brilliant sky of stars that hang overhead, immersing you in a completely new world. Excitingly Field of Light will now run indefinitely.
