We hope you enjoy your visit to Field of Light: Avenue of Honour. Please be mindful that this is a place of memorial, where people come to pay their respects to loved ones. Thank you for being considerate to all.
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.
Highlighting the region’s unique sense of place and identity in sophisticated, contemporary ways, Field of Light: Avenue of Honour will symbolise wild beauty, sacrifice, courage and honour.
