Monkeystack was commissioned by 57 Films to produce a 360 Virtual Reality tour of Riverland Wine as part of a South Australian centric collaboration brought to life thanks to the Australian Government’s $50 million Export and Regional Wine Support Package, alongside key stakeholders including Wine Australia, Riverland Wine, University of Adelaide, Martins Brand House and 57 Films.
Riverland on the Verge leads the way as the future of tourism, using VR technology to transport travellers into the heart of South Australia’s iconic Riverlands, inspiring the viewer to make their virtual experience a reality.
Users can experience Riverland on the Verge by simply downloading the free app from your usual App Store and ordering a headset for free from the official Riverland on the Verge site.
The launch of the innovative tourism experience was covered by the National Tribune, Murray Pioneer, who described the project as a “virtual reality game-changer”, and wine-centric outlets including Wine Australia, Wine Industry Advisor and Wine Titles.
“Many tourists can’t get to the wineries right now, so it’s pleasing to see that Riverland Wine has embraced interactive technology to bring wineries to tourists in 3D, and cellar sales back to our wine producers” – former Minister for Agriculture, David Littleproud, 2020.
“Riverland Wine has, for a long time, been at the cutting edge of technology advancement in the wine industry. This is an excellent example of innovation in regional Australia” – Federal Member for Barker Tony Pasin MP, 2020.
