About 48 Hours of GONDWANA VR: The Exhibition:
Explore a forest that never sleeps in the epic 48-hour finale to summer exhibition GONDWANA VR: The Exhibition as part of the 2024 Adelaide Festival program.

From 5pm Friday 8 March to 5pm Sunday 10 March, visitors can roam the digital forest at all hours of the day and night by slipping on a VR headset, or exploring an immersive installation that expands the rainforest beyond the goggles through projection, lighting, cinematic sound, and pieces from the Museum’s historic Natural Science collections.

Across this marathon 48-hour event the Museum will also host a rolling program of free and ticketed family-friendly events, from meditation and yoga sessions to live music, film screenings, storytime, hands-on workshops, and floor talks from speakers including GONDWANA VR creators Ben Joseph Andrews and Emma Roberts, and South Australia’s Chief Public Health Officer Professor Nicola Spurrier.
