Vehicle Friendly Nights at Field of Light: Avenue of Honour

We want everyone to be able to enjoy the spectacular installation Field of Light: Avenue of Honour. Whilst the experience is usually for pedestrians only, we will be holding three vehicle friendly nights over February and March 2019 to ensure visitors with limited mobility are also able to experience this installation. Only on these nights will cars and buses be able to drive along Apex Drive, through the Field of Light: Avenue of Honour.

Vehicle Friendly Nights will be held from sunset until 10:00pm

Upon registering, vehicles will be allocated a 15 minute block within which we ask you to arrive. The dates and respective arrival times are as follows:

  • Tuesday 5th February              7:15 pm - 9:30 pm
  • Tuesday 26th February            7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
  • Tuesday 19th March                 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Please email info@fieldoflightalbany.com.au to register your vehicle with your name and vehicle type (e.g. sedan, van, bus). Be sure to include the date you wish to attend and any preference for arrival time, and we will do our best to accommodate. You will receive a confirmation and an allocated time for your vehicle to enter Field of Light: Avenue of Honour.

UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who attended the first night on 5th February, the evening was a great success. Tuesday 26th February is now fully booked out. Tuesday 19th March still has availabilities from 8:00pm onwards.
