Albany set to shimmer in October
Following on from the incredibly successful – and incredibly beautiful – Field of Light, Uluru, WA is getting its own Field of Light in Albany.

Picture this:

"Thousands of glass spheres on slender stems planted along the avenue at Albany Heritage Park by local volunteers, illuminating the tree-lined path with an artwork blooming at night like wildflowers after rain." – Field of Light, Albany website

Lighting up Mt Clarence from October until April, The Field of Light: Avenue of Honour is an immersive art installation by internationally renowned artist Bruce Munro, illuminating the Avenue of Honour in homage to the Anzacs who departed from Albany for the Great War.

Marking 100 years since the end of the First World War, the installation will also symbolise the national flowers of Australia and New Zealand, with 16,000 lights shimmering in the whites, yellows and golds of the wattle and the kowhai. Coinciding with the region's peak wildflower season, the installation also celebrates Albany's unique biodiversity.
