Transport yourself to a world of ice and snow through the wonder of virtual reality, and explore a day in the life of Australian Antarctic scientists as they research this mysterious continent.

Visit Davis Station and learn about daily life in these harsh conditions, and marvel at the spectacular southern lights.

Learn-first hand how scientists are understanding climate change, managing ecosystems, researching sustainability and conserving wildlife. With 360-degree camera control and stunning video imagery, this is Antarctica as you’ve never seen it before.
