Virtual tours and immersive travelling is the latest travel fad, and Tourism Australia just took it to a whole new level

The pandemic has upped the tech and virtual reality scene in every sector like never before, including travel and tourism. Virtual tours have now become the new way to travel. To make it even more immersive, Tourism Australia has pushed tech boundaries even further. You can now visit Australia in 8D.

The innovative 8D audio tech will take viewers on a sensory journey of the unique sights, sounds and textures of Australia’s iconic destinations. The 3D sensory effect produced by headphones will definitely make the viewers feel as if they are present at the locations in real time.

That’s not all. The entire experience is colour coded to evoke a range of feelings and emotions. Ranging from the vibrant red sands of Uluru, turquoise blue waters of the Great Barrier Reef, the deep greens of the Daintree Rainforest, Australia’s landscapes span the full colour spectrum.

Visit their website and choose your preferred destination, and get ready to find yourself in the middle of Australian landscapes and wilderness from your living room.
