Illuminating Albany to honour Anzac sacrifice

  • Acclaimed international artist commemorates Anzac spirit and Armistice anniversary
  • Installation will feature more than 16,000 lights
  • Supported by State Government through Tourism WA’s Regional Events Program

Albany will become a beacon for honouring the service and sacrifice of the Anzacs when Field of Light: Avenue of Honour opens next week.

Adorning the Avenue of Honour on Mount Clarence, thousands of visitors are expected to wander through the display of more than 16,000 lights crafted by world-renowned artist Bruce Munro.

The shining glass spheres will light up the road approaching Albany’s National Anzac Centre in whites, yellows and golds – the colours of Australia’s and New Zealand’s national flowers.

Field of Light: Avenue of Honour, exhibiting from October 4, 2018 to Anzac Day 2019, will coincide with the conclusion of the Anzac Centenary commemorations.

Field of Light: Avenue of Honour is proudly supported by the State Government, through Tourism Western Australia’s Regional Events Program and Lotterywest.

The initiative is a partnership led by the City of Albany, Returned & Services League of Australia WA Branch, local RSL Albany sub-branch and FORM – an independent non-profit cultural organisation.
