Be captivated by a cascading panorama of 16,000 incandescent lights across Australia’s first ANZAC Day Dawn Service Mass location. An illuminating field that captures the spirit of the Anzacs, and leads you to continue your journey with a self-guided walk across this historical location.
The Field of Light was inspired by the thousands of Australian and New Zealand troops that amassed in Albany before crossing the waters into World War 1 in 1914.
As a tribute to the fallen, British artist Bruce Munro wanted to capture their spirit in an art installation of 16,000 glass spheres placed along the Avenue of Honour at Albany Heritage Park.
Your tour will take you to the summit of Mt Clarence, where you can experience a self-guided walking tour of the ANZAC monuments including the location of Australia’s first Anzac Dawn Service Mass.
