Spectacular Sound and Light Show Launches in the Spiritual Heart of Australia

Voyages Indigenous Tourism Australia is set to launch a breath-taking, fully-immersive light and sound show at Ayers Rock Resort in May, the likes of which have not been seen before, combining ancient Anangu storytelling with state-of-the-art, drone and laser light technology. 

Called Wintjiri Wiru – which suggests a ‘beautiful view out to the horizon’ in the local Anangu language – this will be the first time a light, laser, projection and drone experience of this magnitude has been performed on a regular basis anywhere in the world.

Anangu have one of the oldest living continuous cultures in the world and have been the custodians of this Country and its many stories, keeping them strong, since the beginning of time.  

The show will bring to life a chapter of the Mala ancestral story which sits between Kaltukatjara (Docker River) and Uluru. Voyages has consulted and collaborated closely with the Anangu custodians of this chapter of the Mala story to obtain approval to bring Wintjiri Wiru to life. 

Designed and produced by world-renowned media architecture studio RAMUS, the Wintjiri Wiru experience will illuminate the Central Desert with a spectacle of lights, projections and lasers shining on the spinifex and mulga, connecting the earth and sky to offer an expansive experience of light and sound in the presence of Uluru.

The depth of the story is revealed when more than 1,000 luminous drones take flight each night to lift the ancient images to the sky. Through exquisite choreography and visual artistry, the drones depict aspects of the Mala story accompanied by a narration in Pitjantjatjara and Yankunytjatjara languages, and a soundtrack with traditional inma recorded with members of the local Anangu community. 

Two Wintjiri Wiru sound and light shows will run every night, from March until December (from 11 May in 2023), with one show a night operating in January and February.   

The signature experience will be the three-hour Wintjiri Wiru Sunset Dinner which starts with welcome cocktails and canapes while the sun sets over Kata Tjuta and Uluru. This will be followed by a gourmet dinner hamper celebrating native ingredients and paired with premium Australian wines. Once darkness has settled the dramatic sound and light show will begin. A second show each evening called After Dark is a shorter, one hour-long experience including light refreshments followed by the show.
