An immersive art installation by Bruce Munro, Field of Light: Avenue of Honour pays homage to the Anzacs with 16,000 shining spheres at Mt Clarence marking the last sight of home for 41,000 troops who departed from Albany for the Great War.

The internationally renowned UK artist’s ephemeral landscape installation will reference the national flowers of Australia and New Zealand; honouring 100 years since the First World War’s end and celebrating Albany’s unique biodiversity with thousands of lights shining in the whites, yellows and golds of the wattle and the kowhai.

The installation coincides with peak wildflower season and the conclusion of the Anzac Centenary commemorations, exhibiting from October 2018 through to Anzac Day in April 2019. Special Anzac events will be staged at and around Field of Light: Avenue of Honour in the days leading up to its close, including commemorations from Anzac Day (April 25) to April 28 2019, the installation’s final weekend.
