Field of Light Albany

Bruce Munro, renowned UK artist, is paying respect to the ANZACs with his immersive art installation Field of Light in Albany, Western Australia.

The Field of Light: Avenue of Honour features over 1800km of fire optic cable and 16,000 glowing spheres symbolising the wild beauty, sacrifice, courage and honour of the 41,000 troops who departed from Albany for the Great War. The Field of Light is situated at Mt Clarence which represents the last sight of home for the troops.

Honouring 100 years since the first World War ended, the landscape installation also references national wildflowers of both Australia and New Zealand. The event will coincide with the wildflower season in Albany, Western Australia.

The glass spheres were planted by local volunteers and the display will run along with the ANZAC Centenary Commemorations. These exhibitions will be available from the 4th October 2018 to 25th April 2019.

As a ‘must see’ when visiting Australia and Albany, organise your accommodation today with our Field of Light package.
