    Disappointed
    Our coach was terrific. Well signed and arrived on time. Driver Andrew and guide Dan wee very good BUT sooo disappointed when we arrived at Field of Lights that only 2 small areas were lit up. Completely understand due to being overcast for several days but was disappointed when you pay for such an exciting experience. We did the Sunrise tour as others booked out.

    Lack of relevance
    It’s was a nice activity to do. The food was interesting and the atmosphere was great. Our hosts were enthusiastic and delightful (five stars for staff). The actual art installation is why I have rated it as 3. In a wonderful natural environment the lights are very out of place. There is no connection with traditional owners. We all questioned the relevance and also why does such an amazing site need to have artificial bling???

    Could be a lot better
    There's no way of seeing this in individual groups. You wait in the lobby of your hotel, climb into a large coach, ride 10 minutes to the site, are herded in a large group for a brief introduction, and then set loose with hordes of tourists and noisy children into what would otherwise be quite a spectacular display of lights across seven football fields in area. Any sense of something gently haunting or mystical was completely swamped by the crowdedness - we were there in early July. It's probably worth seeing but in comparison to what it would undoubtedly be in better circumstances, or to the breathtaking landscapes all around you in the NT, it was somewhat disappointing.

    Field of Light Dinner at Uluṟu
    We did the Field of Light Dinner which combines the Sounds of Silence dinner with a walk through the field of light. It is a great experience with lovely food, great ambience, a short educational astronomy talk and a lovely walk through the Field of Light. I’d recommend this for couples, families young and old.

    Uluru Field of Light Star Pass sunset tour
    The Field of Light sunset tour was included in our package, we were picked up from our accommodation & taken to a sunset viewing area, where drinks & canapés were served. The food was lovely & there was plenty to go around. The staff were very friendly & our coach driver & guide were very knowledgeable about the area. Once it was dark we got to walk down through the field of light which provides a different view, personally I thought it looked better from the sand dune viewing area but still enjoyed the walk though the lights. Definitely worth doing.

    Sunset drinks and a walk through the field of lights.
    We paid for the canapés package. $110. Choice of sparking, wine, beer and soft drinks. Not premium but absolutely fine. A few canapés, maybe 4 each, one being a mini kangaroo burger. Friendly and helpful staff. Maybe about 80 people to watch the sun go down with Uluru in the distance. Then about 50 mins to walk through Field of Lights. Which was very impressive. All lights were working and changing colours every 6 seconds. You can slowly walk through following low lit paths. Very enjoyable evening.

    A Magical Night!!
    We had high expectations of our evening at the Field of Light and were not disappointed! The installation is stunning - the colours and design were so beautiful. Thank you to all the staff and congratulations to Bruce Munro!! We would definitely recommend this as a must-see if you are visiting Uluru!

    Literally, a field of lights
    You can only visit via joining a tour, no self drive allowed. Only about 10 minutes from resorts. We had 4 full coaches arrive all at the same time. The guide, identified by glow sticks, called out instructions to the large group and then you are basically left to wander the trail by yourself. Once visitors start to head off, you end up with space to be able to take photos etc and people are dispersed across the trail. You have about 40 minutes to complete the trail before you head back, ready to board the coach again. There are 2 ways you can go, a short trail or a longer trail (200m or 700m). Trails are easy and flat. 40 minutes is ample time, so don't rush as you will only be waiting at the toilet block if you finish early. No need to take torches as there is sufficient lighting and the torches only ruin the ambience. The lights change colours every 6 seconds so the field is constantly changing. Tip: take a look up into the night sky, it is just as, if not even more amazing.

    A bit disappointing
    We did the star pass with canapes $110 each, and didn't think it was value for money. 4 different canapes, but lots of wine or beer, so that was good. We were underwhelmed by the lights, we didn't see them from the platform when it was dark, so whether you would have understood it better, I don't know.

    Lights as far as the eye can see
    Lovely trip to this amazing light installation. We paid $49 for the basic trip: pick up at hotel and 1 hour walk around the installation. It’s was atmospheric and worth the money. A lovely introduction by an indigenous lady and lots of space and low lighting on the track meant you could really enjoy the spectacle of light. There was a bit of light pollution, probably coming from the people who paid to have a dining experience, along with the noise of cheering and clapping which spoilt the serenity of the place. Our coaches kept their engines running a bit too long too, which spoilt the silence. But this is easily remedied for future tours - wonderful experience nonetheless

The sunset and free flowing drinks were the best part of this. Dinner was the worst part sadly. Starting with a pumpkin soup which was very nice it just went downhill fast when it moved to the buffet. All the salads had no dressings and nothing available to add which really made the crocodile coleslaw so dry and inedible. Pasta salad also very dry and bland and a tossed garden salad was ok but again no salad dressing. Onto the meat - chicken was ok and kangaroo stew, lamb chops were so tough we couldn't even cut them. The dessert selection was ok.
The stargazing talk was good then time to set free on the field of lights. No guide, just told off you go and follow the green light to find the end. Everyone wandered aimlessly and the person with the green light kept moving. The bus ended up leaving 15 minutes early because everyone was done and complaining how bad the field was not knowing where to go.

The experience is interesting, sunset with drinks is nice and you get to see the color changes on the rock. Dinner is a good setting but food is very poor, after the pumpkin soup it goes downhill with buffet were hot dishes are cold - Barra was cold by the time we got there, lamb chops cold in fat and roo stew cold. Wines are free flow and good. Give the dinner a miss.

Lights are ok, but you need a viewing platform to fully appreciate.

I recently visited the Field of Light at Uluru, and unfortunately, it didn’t live up to the hype. Here’s why:

Lackluster Impact:
Despite the anticipation, the display was merely a field filled with lights.
It lacked the “wow” factor I was expecting.

Misleading Brightness:
The advertising pictures portrayed a much brighter spectacle than what I witnessed.
In reality, it fell short of being truly spectacular.

Colorful but Not Captivating:
Yes, it was colorful, but it didn’t leave a lasting impression.

In summary, the Field of Light didn’t meet my expectations. If you’re looking for a truly awe-inspiring experience, you might want to explore other options

Really cool light installation. It's so much better in person than the pictures. It only takes about 15 minutes to walk through and the tour guides gave us the history of the artist and installation.

Completely meh. Sorry. Took the standard tour and without a viewing platform the lights look just look like a blur with no meaning. The commentary added very little context - basically here is a field, go wander... And wonder... Then wait for ages for the bus to turn up and rescue you - no communication and seemingly no organisation.

Great night that started with drinks & delicious canapés then a 3course meal under the stars. Staff very attentive and plenty of food and drink. There was a guy playing didgeridoo and Harry did a fantastic (& funny) talk on the stars before a great walk at your leisure through the lights

I was expecting a spectacular display of changing colours, dancing in the dark. Many colours remained the same, there were gaps in the arrangements of these lights, which interrupted the canvas. I wondered if the installation of this art was perhaps too old and had changed over time.

At $48 I took the “long walk” around the display, taking 15 minutes. There is a shorter walk of 10 minutes. Unless you have booked the meal, it’s back on the coach!

An overall disappointing experience.

A very generous amount of alcohol certainly enhanced our experience of the dinner, star gazing, field of lights tour but I think it was genuinely well done. Beautiful location, good buffet meal and then a lovely meander through the lights made a highly enjoyable evening. There was even a didgeridoo player at the start of the meal and a highly entertaining exploration of the night sky afterwards.
