September 28 (TravelAndy): Albany will become a beacon for honouring the service and sacrifice of the Anzacs when Field of Light: Avenue of Honour opens in Albany in the first week of October.

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 represent the colours of Australia and New Zealand’s national flowers. Field of Light: Avenue of Honour will coincide with the conclusion of the Anzac Centenary commemorations, exhibiting from October 4, 2018 to Anzac Day 2019.

Field of Light: Avenue of Honour is supported by Tourism WA’s Regional Events Program and Lotterywest, and from the Australian Government through the Building Better Regions Fund.  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.
