The Experience

TRAVEL THE NATURAL WORLD AND JOURNEY ACROSS THE SEVEN CONTINENTS IN ONE EPIC EXPERIENCE

Experience an unforgettable journey through the natural world and explore the unique and extraordinary diversity of our seven unique continents on the most epic scale. Featuring bespoke narration from David Attenborough, BBC Earth Experience showcases breath-taking footage and music from the BBC Studios Natural History Unit television series Seven Worlds, One Planet, projected on multiple multi-angle screens using the very latest digital screen technology.

Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre is the home of this transformative audio visual experience where you will feel like you’ve stepped into the natural world, right in the heart of Melbourne.

If you haven’t been to an immersive experience before, here are a few tips for how to get the most out of it:

It’s a self-guided tour and you are free to choose your own route through the experience. When you enter the space, be prepared to be dazzled by the epic scale of the screens.

We encourage you to wander around the space at your own pace and absorb the beauty of our planet.  Lose yourself in a forest full of fireflies, discover a colourful carpet of starfish and find yourself witness to a four-tonne elephant seal fight.

We recommend that you roam freely around the main gallery as there are different storylines to enjoy, depending on where you’re standing.  At other moments in the show, you will be entirely surrounded by the same imagery, all around you.

And don’t forget to look out for the breakout zones - Micro Life and Water Life.
