Witness Bruce Munro’s Field of Light in the Australian Outback

The installation is made up of 50,000 stems crowned with colorful frosted glass bulbs.

By Serina Tatham

Located just outside Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, a dual Unesco World Heritage Site recognized for two of Australia’s most spectacular sites — the world-famous Uluru and the red domes of Kata Tjuta — is where you’ll find Longitude 131°. This luxury desert basecamp offers a spiritually connected vacation, where you can wake each morning to unparalleled views of the monolith from each tent.

And these are not just any tents. Each self-contained abode is akin to a treehouse, with terraces allowing guests to make the most of the spectacular views. Within just a six-mile direct line of sight to Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock, this is the best way to experience the Outback. Custom-designed furniture from Australian designers and works by Indigenous artists provide a sense of place and remind guests of the area’s rich history.

To experience Uluru in a whole new light, spend an evening under the stars and marvel at Field of Light, the installation from internationally acclaimed artist Bruce Munro, who’s known for his large immersive light-based pieces.

This installation at Longitude 131° is the largest iteration of Munro’s Field of Light yet and is made up of 50,000 stems crowned with colorful frosted glass bulbs that give the appearance of blooming and swaying. Exclusive to guests of the camp, the experience begins at dusk, when you will wander among the installation and witness Uluru lit up like never before. Close the night at Table 131°, an iconic outdoor dining experience celebrating native ingredients and local produce, with a menu prepared atop a remote dune and served under a blanket of stars.
