David Attenborough’s Virtual Reality Experiences

After a sell-out season in London, this virtual reality experience comes to the National Museum of Australia.

David Attenborough’s Virtual Reality Experiences are a feast for the senses! Immerse yourself in the first two natural history documentaries ever designed for Virtual Reality (VR). Join David Attenborough as he travels back through time to see the first glimmerings of life on earth, or dive into a breathtaking underwater tour of the Great Barrier Reef, all using the latest in VR technology.

In David Attenborough’s First Life VR, visitors travel back 540 million years as Attenborough reveals the dawn of life on Earth and introduces us to its earliest inhabitants, exploring ancient oceans and interacting with extinct sea creatures.

Long-extinct animals such as the whimsically built Opabinia, the fearsome-looking Anomalocaris and the spiny, worm-like Hallucigenia will be brought vividly alive in a fully immersive VR experience.

David Attenborough’s Great Barrier Reef Dive VR uses real-world footage and pioneering technologies to shed new light on this magnificent habitat. Visitors will take a 360-degree, VR tour through the vibrant coral, darting fish and majestic sharks in this great natural wonder of the world. In a state-of-the-art submersible, Attenborough guides us through the reef.
