Virtual Reality Adventure

WA Maritime Museum

Few are fortunate enough to travel to Antarctica. Even fewer experience what it is like to live there.
That's all about to change.

In this cutting edge VR documentary, you will spend a day in the life of an Antarctic explorer.

You will see first-hand the work that goes into understanding climate change, managing eco-systems, researching sustainability and conserving wildlife.

Together with the crew at Davis Station, you will experience what it’s like to live in one of the remotest places on the planet.

Along the way you will:

  • Accompany a Glacionaut in their field research to Sorsdal glacier.
  • Jump in a zodiac to discover the resident penguin colony and see the new chicks.
  • Explore Davis Station and logistics that go into surviving the harsh Antarctic conditions.
  • Take off in the helicopter to see the spectacular views and learn about ice core science.

With 360-degree camera control and stunning high quality vision, we welcome you to your immersive Antarctic Experience.

This groundbreaking VR adventure will launch exclusively at the WA Maritime Museum this September.

Tickets on sale soon.
