BAFTA award-winning David Attenborough’s Great Barrier Reef Dive VR is a fully immersive virtual reality experience where viewers can experience one of the greatest natural wonders on Earth – the Great Barrier Reef.

In a state-of-the-art Triton submersible, 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 predicting 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.
