It won’t be long until Avenue of Honour on Mt Clarence will be lit up in a stunning installation by UK artist Bruce Munro.

Avenue of Honour; Field of light will shine with 16,000 spheres paying homage to the Anzacs, marking the last sight of home for 41,000 troops who departed from Albany for the Great War.

FORM’s Michal Zdanowicz said it has been great watching the project unfold.

“It’s been great seeing the project come together and with the help of our wonderful volunteers, this installation is rapidly coming to life,” he said.

“We can’t wait to see the reactions on people’s faces when they see 16,000 glass spheres light up on October 4.”
