The only Uluru experience that I wish we hadn't booked
Oct 2021
One of the more disappointing experiences at Uluru mainly due to the price. It is overpriced for what is effectively an Uluru sunset (offered on so many tours), a few canapes and a bit of a light show. Yes it's pretty but the light installation for those that live in cities will most likely be quite underwhelming. The yearly Christmas lightshows in Brisbane are far more impressive than this and a portion of the entry fee.

You'll by no means have a bad time and it's certainly a pleasant way to spend an evening but it was definitely a tour that we felt was poor value compared to others on offer. When discussing our holiday this was the one we all felt we could have easily skipped without missing out.

Where Fields of Light may have an audience is those with smaller children. It's probably also well suited for older people with limited mobility however be aware that it is very dark with uneven ground heading down into the Star Pass area. If you are unsure on your feet you'll possibly need someone to walk with you and guide you down. For families with older kids I'd recommend skipping this and heading for camel riding. If your budget stretches this could also be replaced by the (excellent) Sounds of Silence dinner experience. Both of these experiences offer a lovely view of the Uluru sunset as part of their packages and offer far better value.

Worth a look

I found this quite impressive. Booking the tour was easily done online and pick up was from the reception. Worth a look but it wouldn’t have bothered me if I had missed this.

Urinating man and light display by Pom on aboriginal land
Oct 2021 • Couples
The concept was rather distasteful. A English man installing lights in an area out towards the rock! Im an Englishman myself to by the way! I felt this was rather pointless - wouldn't a design from Aṉangu or something like that have made better viewing. Too top this off a old guy urinated in full view of staff member - and literally within maybe 2-3 metres of lights - nothing was done or said - how disrespectful of the guy and ridiculous that staff member didn't bat an eyelid. This same guys wife even said for him to come back - the loos we're about 100 metres away if that.

Excellent night.

The coach collected us from outside the Ayres Rock campground. We did the Star Pass and were really impressed with the tasty box of canapés consisting of local produce which we enjoyed with a glass of wine. Then as the sun set and the lights came to life in an array of colours, it was a magical experience. Later we walked down amongst the lights before boarding the bus and returning to our accommodation. Book in advance - well worth doing

Magic after dark
Oct 2021 • Couples
An awe inspiring moment. As the sun set with Uluru in the distance the light displays gradually illuminated and the magic began.

Disappointing
Oct 2021
This was an OK experience, but I was somewhat underwhelmed by the fields of lights. We just did the basic trip in the evening. Not worth getting up early to do the morning visit in my opinion.

Magical experience
Oct 2021 • Couples
A must tour, We chose to go on the Star Pass which took in sunset as well as canapés and bubbles $99 each. We were pick up by coach and driven to the site which was about 10mins. The coach was met by our lovely host Maddie and we were directed up a red sand path to a viewing platform where we were served cold bubbles or beer and a little box of assorted bush flavoured canapés. We chatted with new friends we had met as we relaxed and enjoyed this amazing experience. It was lovely as the sun went down watching as the rock took on so many changes All the staff were very professional, friendly and were very generous with their serving of the drinks it was great value for the money. I would have been happy with just that part of the tour but Then as dark fell the lights appeared. At first just a sprinkling of colour here and there but all of a sudden thousand of gorgeous coloured lights lit up the red sand and they seemed to go on forever. Simply amazing truely magical. A must do in Uluru recommend booking way in advance as it is very popular and if you are only here for a few days you may not get in.

Great experience
Oct 2021 • Couples
Absolutely great experience. Have wanted to see the Field of Light for a long time & well worth the wait. Food & drinks on viewing deck overlooking Uluru & Field of Light. Sun setting over Kate Tjuta, beautiful views all round. Field of Light walk was a bit rushed but overall it was a great night.

Disappointing

Wine was ok but canapés disappointing. We had the canapé and drink option . Very rushed through the lights after the drinks . Lights a lot duller than promotional photos

Field of lights not a field of dreams. Outdated art show not taking advantage of the amazing location.
Sep 2021 • Family
This is my first review in years. But I really was let down here.
Whilst it is a unique experience, in a stunning environment, it is set in a valley. Your free drinks and food, with view of Uluru last for just over 30mins.
The lights are only switched on once you get ushered down to the field, where no drinks are allowed, and Uluru slips out of sight.
The lights are not particularly bright. The path you have to follow is ambiguous and poorly lit by small solar Bunnings lights, many of which don't work. A torch may be helpful.
Much emphasis is placed on the 15 tons of hand blown glass bulbs. No mention of how many tons of fibre optics used or batteries needed. It is apparently solar powered however.
It's a rather 80's exhibit, where the environment played less of a role.

Feedback:
Turn lights on whilst Uluru is still visible from platform. (Uluru is the Star here- not the artist)
Outline how recyclable the plastic is.
If you charge for kids- offer child friendly food
If it really is all solar powered, turn the bulbs up a notch to enhance the experience. (The elderly customers with cataracts will be thankful)
Make the path clearer to follow.
