About the project

Read more on Wikipedia.

The story of "Burke & Wills" is an incredible part of Australian Exploring history, being the first exploring party to travel from one side of the Australian continent to the other through the interior..... But what makes the historic circumstances special are the events that took place at the "Dig Tree"......

"Now using the immersive technology of Augmented Reality, we can recreate the experience so that people who visit the location are able to get a close encounter"

The objective is to deliver an experience that is:

  • 'in person'
  • 'in the physical environment'
  • 'using their personal smart device'
  • 'without the need for internet coverage'

Just image what it would be like to visit the exact location where events took place and then experience them in Augmented Reality just as though it was taking place right before your eyes!!!

The Dig Tree located on Cooper Creek

If you have a moment to read more about this particular event, how it fits into Australian history and the incredible circumstances that make this such an incredible encounter; then you would understand that having this experience brought to life is a MUST and this crowd funding page enables this to take place..... you generosity is greatly appreciated! 

This is the route taken by the Burke and Will Expedition
