In April 2023, a new light exhibition called the Light Towers will open at Kings Canyon resort in Watarrka National park, and participants of the Great Outback Escape (29 April – 6 May) will be among the first to experience it.
The exhibition, created by artist Bruce Munro, features 69 towers taller than an average human made up of approximately 220 glass bottles filled with solar fibre optic cables.
The theme of the installation is "from sunrise to sunset," inspired by the book Gifts of Unknown Things by Lyall Watson.
The sound element of the installation will be created from voices of different cultures and ways of singing, symbolising unity.
The Light Towers exhibition is a result of a multi-million-dollar partnership between Munro and the Kings Canyon resort, facilitated by the G'day Group, which runs accommodation services at the resort.
Great Outback Escape riders will have the chance to visit the installation for the sunrise session before a enjoying a morning pedal to Kathleen Springs and Kings Creek Station.
The Light Towers comes off the back of the success of Munro's previous installation the Field of Light, which riders will explore just one day later before watching the sunrise from a viewing platform with the backdrop of Uluru over breakfast.
Munro believes the installations are emotionally and spiritually connected, making it an even more special experience for riders on the Great Outback Escape.
The Great Outback Escape is a fully-supported 8-day bike riding holiday through Australia's Red Centre from 29 April – 6 May 2023. The Light Towers are just one of the many special activities riders have the can experience on this premium adventure.
