David Attenborough’s Great Barrier Reef Dive VR is an award-winning fully immersive virtual reality experience produced by Alchemy VR. In 360 video virtual reality, dive deep beneath the waves on the Great Barrier Reef, sitting next to your guide, David Attenborough.  Taking you through vibrant corals, darting fish and sleek reef sharks, this immersive VR experience will allow you to experience this great natural wonder of the world.

In a state-of-the-art Triton submersible, with David Attenborough you dive through a wonderland with over 3000 reef systems forming one of the most important natural resources on Earth. It is an extraordinary opportunity to come face to face with the incredible diversity and abundance of the Great Barrier Reef, and learn how researchers are using certain species of corals to predict how the reef will react to environmental changes.

Alchemy VR’s team worked alongside renowned research institutions from across the world including the Australian Institute of Marine Science, James Cooke University and the University of Queensland to showcase the beautiful diversity on the reef and uncover the incredible research being done to decode it. 

Not recommended for children under the age 13 and people with certain medical conditions; glasses can be worn under the headset, but the focus cannot be adjusted.
