The Visit Whitsundays App is a part of the Bowen Visitor Information Centre Virtual Reality Installation - funded jointly by Queensland and Australian Government Tourism Recovery Fund. At the Information Centre visitors can explore the Whitsundays region through a CGI interactive map and hotspots, and then and via a virtual reality (VR) headset that transports the viewer to the hero experience. 

The 360 videos produced for the installation and app showcase hero experiences from every corner of the Whitsundays region, from snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef to visiting a haunted outback pub.

Viewing the 360 videos through a VR headset literally places the viewer in the scene, discovering the thrill of skydiving onto a beautiful Whitsundays beach, or fishing for the elusive barramundi on Lake Proserpine. The Great Barrier Reef, Whitehaven Beach and delightful Greys Bay in Bowen are also featured in crystal clear fly-overs.

The Visit Whitsundays App is free! If you would like to order a Visit Whitsundays VR headset, get in touch with the Bowen Tourism and Business team today.
