THE ANTARCTICA EXPERIENCE is screening exclusively at the WA Maritime Museum in Fremantle until Sunday, 14 October 2018.

THE ANTARCTICA EXPERIENCE is a virtual reality film shot in 3D, 360-degree, high-definition video—and it’s the next best thing to visiting the frozen continent.

The VR adventure is a unique opportunity to explore a day in the life of Antarctic expeditioners on this mysterious environment.

The ground-breaking immersive experience is the work of WA filmmaker Briege Whitehead, of White Spark Pictures, who partnered with BAFTA award-winning director Phil Harper, known for his work on DAVID ATTENBOROUGH’S GREAT BARRIER REEF VR DIVE.

With this virtual reality world-first, you’ll wear a VR headset and see first-hand the work of Australian scientists in understanding climate change, managing eco-systems and conserving the unique wildlife.

Along the way, you’ll also:

  • Explore Antarctica from a helicopter cockpit, even landing on a glacier
  • Jump in a Zodiac to visit a penguin colony and meet the new chicks
  • Explore Australia’s Davis Research Station and learn about the logistics that go into surviving the harsh Antarctic conditions, and
  • View the spectacular Southern Lights in high definition.


Tickets are available on the WA Museum Website.


THE ANTARCTICA EXPERIENCE is proudly supported by the Western Australian Museum, Screenwest, Lotterywest and Screen Australia. White Spark Pictures travelled to Antarctica with the support of the Australian Antarctic Program.
