Event description

About the Exhibition

“A jaw-dropping feat” - The Guardian

“A love letter to the Daintree, but also a warning about its fragility.” - The Australian

A world-first multi-sensory installation distilling 100 years of climate data into a single day, this unique meditation on one of Australia’s richest ecosystems invites visitors to become lost in an evocative tribute to its lush foliage, light-streaked canopies, and forest floor teeming with life.

Fresh from screenings at SXSW, Sundance Film Festival, Melbourne International Film Festival and CPH:DOX in Copenhagen, co-creators Ben Joseph Andrews and Emma Roberts have developed a unique open-play environment inspired by five months of research spent off-grid and on the ground in the World Heritage-listed Daintree and surrounding Wet Tropics.

Explore the physical exhibition space – a tranquil experiment in multi-sensory place-making that expands the VR experience out of the headset with projection, lighting, and cinematic sound. 

GONDWANA VR: The Exhibition is open daily 10am-5pm from 9 December 2023 - 17 March 2024.
