The striking large-scale art piece ‘Field of Light’ by British installation artist Bruce Munro has been illuminating the red centre since 2016, and it’s not going anywhere soon. The beauty of visiting Uluru while this installation is on is that you get a ripper view of the famous landmark illuminated by more than 50,000 multi-coloured LED lights. Visit it at dusk to see it at its most spectacular.
