Few are fortunate enough to travel to Antarctica, even fewer experience what it is like to live there, that’s about to change!

Transport yourself to a world of ice and snow through the wonder of virtual reality, and explore a day in the life of Australian Antarctic scientists as they research this mysterious continent.

With 360-degree camera control and stunning 4K, high-resolution vision, you’ll see first-hand the work that goes into understanding climate change, managing ecosystems, researching sustainability, and conserving wildlife.

Along the way in The Antarctica Experience you’ll:

  • Explore Antarctica from a helicopter cockpit, even landing on glaciers.
  • Discover the resident penguin colony and see the new chicks.
  • Explore Davis Station and logistics that go into surviving the harsh Antarctic conditions.
  • View the spectacular Southern Lights in high definition.
