NOW OPENING 14 DECEMBER!
Take a virtual journey into the wonderful world of the Southern Ocean and Antarctica and engage with the many interactive and immersive experiences in this exhibition, a joint venture between Phillip Island Nature Parks and WWF-Australia.
Comprising three levels, Phillip Island is showcased as the gateway to the Antarctic on the uppermost level (free entry to this level), finding some interesting links between this temperate island and the frozen lands of Antarctica.
Next, descend into the area known as The Lab, to be entertained and educated through a range of interactive and informative experiences. Feel the Freeze as you enter the Antarctic ‘Chill Zone’, try to sink a bowling ball, compare your thermal image with an Emperor penguin, or check out a sea spider under a microscope. With the remarkable Antarctic landscape as the backdrop, the unique wildlife, ongoing research activities, and the critically important conservation values of this remote continent will come alive before your eyes.
The final level is one of complete immersion in what can only be described as a stunning and breathtaking, state of the art multimedia experience. Find yourself enthralled by the audio visual spectacle which puts you right in the heart of the action. All thanks to the cutting-edge ‘augmented reality’ technology, you will be able to stand on an ice floe and pat a penguin, stroke a seal or marvel at a whale within arm’s reach.
