Queenslanders, and visitors to Brisbane, will soon be able to immerse themselves in Australia’s unique landscape, wildlife, and natural beauty at the Australian Geographic: Our Country 360° Cinematic Experience.
Launching on March 11 at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, Our Country is a 40-screen multi-sensory experience that provides a never-before-seen perspective on Australia’s breathtaking wilderness, celebrating the grandeur and diversity of Australia’s wild places, backed by the sounds of nature.
“Australia is home to more than one million species, plants and animals, and more than 80 per cent of our plants and mammals are found nowhere else on earth. Our Country is an incredible opportunity for visitors to be swept away by Australia’s natural wonders and leave feeling inspired to explore their own backyards right here in Queensland,” said Australian Geographic Society Chair, David Haslingden.
Our Country features extraordinary content from Queensland, including the planet’s largest coral reef system and the world’s oldest rainforests. The cinematic experience represents more than 100,000 hours in the field by 25 cinematographers who set out to capture the natural landscapes of Australia. Curated by internationally renowned and Emmy award-winning producer and filmmaker, Karina Holden, Our Country features sound and music by Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists, including ARIA Chart-topping, Bowerbird Collective and indigenous artist, Gambirra Illume.
“Our Country is the result of a decade’s work filming Australia designed to be deeply personal as each viewer makes their own discoveries about our breath-taking country, surrounded by the sights and sounds of nature,” Ms. Holden said.
The cinematography is brought to life using state-of-the-art technology, including more than 40 screens with an ultra-high-definition screen resolution (6K), and a powerful 360-degree surround soundscape, all delivered by specialists in exhibition and entertainment, TEG.
