DISCOVER WA is a 360°, 3d immersive virtual reality tour of the national parks and special places in Western Australia (WA).
Built with Unity, DISCOVER WA uses head based tracking to deliver an interactive "gaze based" journey via a spectacular curved UI in a 3d setting. Depth of field and visual realism are achieved via high resolution stereoscopic photography, with the added depth of information via information popups and sound. Thanks to the Unity ecosystem, the application was able to be ported across the top 4 stores.
See the rugged south coast and hear the roar of the Southern Ocean, walk in the tree tops at the Valley of Giants and go underground in caves of the Leeuwin Naturaliste National Park.
You can choose audio and information popup ups that tell you more about each place. The Department of Parks and Wildlife manage the state’s national parks, marine parks and other reserves, which cover an area of more than 27 million hectares. Keep coming back to this app as we add more parks and places to DISCOVER WA to help you plan your next adventure.
DISCOVER WA is brought to you by the Department of Parks and Wildlife WA and developed by Viewport Pty Ltd.
