"If there’s one thing you should do in 2020, put the unforgettable Darwin on your bucket list, her experiences and culture will surprise and delight you."
It’s easy to forget that Darwin, the Northern Territory’s creative capital, is more than just a gateway to Kakadu, Katherine and Litchfield National Park. Darwin is a hive of creativity situated on the Timor Sea, just a four-hour flight from Australia’s Eastern Seaboard.
Augmented reality graffiti tour
A new augmented reality experience takes Darwin’s street art off the walls and into the world with floating giant turtles and bouncing jellyfish. As part of the Darwin Street Art Festival 2019, murals painted by renowned local and interstate artists have been given a technological makeover using augmented reality. The incredible outdoor experience takes 2-D artworks into 3-D animations using a smartphone app.
As you walk the vibrant streets of Darwin, make sure you look up to the multi-storey murals that now adorn the once uninteresting buildings. These amazing public art displays create an unforgettable cultural experience for travellers and locals alike. The powerful experience gives viewers the opportunity to truly engage with the artwork and all that Darwin has to offer.
