This is Antarctica as you’ve never seen it before — it’s the next best thing to visiting the frozen continent.

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 Antarctica from Davis Research Station.

With narration by David Wenham (Lord of the Rings, Elvis, Moulin Rouge), 360-degree camera control and stunning 4K high-resolution vision, you’ll see first-hand the work that goes into understanding climate change, managing ecosystems, researching sustainability, and conserving wildlife.

Along the way, you’ll:

  • Explore Antarctica from a helicopter cockpit, even landing on glaciers.

  • Discover the resident penguin colony and see the new chicks.

  • Explore Davis Station and the logistics that go into surviving the harsh Antarctic conditions

  • View the spectacular Southern Lights in high definition.
