If sunset views of Uluru, sparkling wine, canapes and a football-field-sized light installation sounds like your idea of a good time, you won't want to miss A Night at Field of Light. Soak up the Central Australian desert as you sip Aussie wine and listen to the atmospheric sounds of the didgeridoo. As darkness falls, you'll witness over 50,000 spherical lights come to life in a dazzling, once-in-a-lifetime display, designed by artist Bruce Monro. According to Monro, Field of Light "represents the convergence of the land and culture". The installation was given the name Tili Wiru Tjuta Nyakutjaku by the local Anangu people, which means 'looking at lots of beautiful lights' in local Pitjantjatjara.

To top it all off, you'll enjoy a three-course bush tucker-inspired dinner, and hear a resident astronomy expert decode the southern night sky. And the best part is you won't even need to lift a finger, as the event includes a hotel pick up to this unreal desert location.
