In 1914 over 41,000 Australian and New Zealand troops amassed in a convoy of over 40 ships in the protected waters  of King George Sound, Albany  as they awaited  their departure to the battlefields of Europe in the First World War.  For many, Albany was their last experience of Australian soil.  Inspired by Albany’s incredible ANZAC Heritage, acclaimed UK artist, Bruce Munro, has created an ephemeral art  exhibit  featuring 16,000  glass  spheres on slender stems planted  along the Avenue of Honour at Albany Heritage Park, illuminating the tree-lined path, like wildflowers after rain. 

Our tour will take visitors to the summit of Mt Clarence, where guests experience  a self-guided walking  tour of the ANZAC monuments including the location of Australia’s first Anzac Dawn Service Mass.  Discover Albany’s amazing stories and view the panorama of King George Sound at sunset, imagining the departure of the ANZAC fleet.

As our bus leaves Mt Clarence at dusk, guests  will experience  the panoramic  view  of the  Field  of  Light; Avenue of Honour exhibit, before alighting  for a self-guided walk, immersed in the cascading panorama  of 16,000 lights whilst descending through the exhibit, like a field of wildflowers amongst native Australian trees.
