About

Don a headset and experience first-hand the work of Australian scientists in understanding climate change, managing ecosystems and conserving the unique wildlife in this virtual reality world-first. Viewers will explore Antarctica from a helicopter cockpit, landing on a glacier and getting up close and personal with penguins in their natural habitat. Visit Australia's Davis research station and learn about the logistics that go into surviving the harsh Antarctic conditions; view Antarctica from a never before seen drone perspective; and see the spectacular Southern Lights in high definition. It’s the next best thing to visiting the frozen continent, and a unique opportunity to explore a day in the life in the Antarctic. Sessions run five times daily. Please allow up to 30 minutes for the VR experience. Recommended for children 13+ but younger children can attend at the parent/guardian’s discretion. Entry Cost Adult $20 Concession $20 Child $20 - For children aged four-15 years, children under four go free. Member $15
