IN THE SPIRITUAL HEART OF AUSTRALIA AN ANCIENT STORY TAKES FLIGHT AT ULURU
Wintjiri Wiru, meaning ‘beautiful view out to the horizon’ in the local Pitjantjatjara language, is a breathtaking cultural storytelling experience that brings to life a chapter of the ancestral Mala story through choreographed drones, lasers and projections that illuminate the night sky.
A story passed on for thousands of generations, now passes to you.
A breathtaking, fully-immersive light and sound show has launched at Ayers Rock Resort, called Wintjiri Wiru, which suggests a ‘beautiful view out to the horizon’ in local Pitjantjatjara language, this is the first time a light, laser, projection and drone experience of this magnitude has been performed on a regular basis anywhere in the world.
CUTTING-EDGE DRONE TECHNOLOGY TELLS ANCIENT INDIGENOUS STORY
Three years in the making and with a multi-million-dollar investment, ancient Indigenous storytelling has been brought to life using state-of-the-art technology at Wintjiri Wiru, the world’s largest ongoing drone display.
With two shows per night, more than 1,100 drones will take to the skies over the Red Centre to depict a chapter of the ancient Mala story from Kaltukatjara to Uluru. It’s the first time an Indigenous story is being told through the medium of lights, lasers, and projections at such a large scale, and performed on a regular basis anywhere in the world.
WINTJIRI WIRU WORKING GROUP
Wintjiri Wiru has been created in partnership with senior Anangu from Kaltukatjara and Mutitjulu. We are grateful for the contribution of the following
“We are thinking about our future. We are looking forward and have created Wintjiri Wiru for the next generation, for our grandchildren.
We have held hands with Voyages to create Wintjiri Wiru together. From the beginning, Voyages has been working together with the Anangu Working Group. We have been talking together, listening together and creating together.
People from every place have come to see Uluru. Now we want people to come and experience our story in a new way. We want visitors to know this is our story, to look and listen and feel with us. Our stories have been here since the beginning and we want to share this story with the world.
We have created this show from our heart, and our thinking, for people everywhere to see. Our old people have left these stories for us and we want you to experience our story too. We always have open arms for people to keep coming to Uluru. We are one world and we want to share something special with you. Wintjiri Wiru is a gift to the world.”
