Maiwar AR

Created by: Bilbie Labs

Country: Brisbane QLD, Australia

MAIWAR AR is a virtual heritage and animated cultural tour of first contact Brisbane.

Be immersed, via your smartphone or WiFi-enabled tablet, within the authentic historical past and be transported back through time to a historical Brisbane (Maiwar) only one day prior to European Settlement.

As you casually walk through the precincts within Curiocity Brisbane, using Maiwar AR you’ll trigger virtual geospatial scenes that will give you a deeper understanding of the connection of First Nations people to specific areas within the landscape of the four Curiocity Brisbane precincts and you’ll learn about places where they lived, worked and played.

Maiwar AR application is a unique virtual experience that will inform and entertain users, while embedding cultural perspectives of a day-in-the-life of the original custodians of Brisbane.
