Arts and culture touches everyone, connects our community and helps build and shape our identity. We know that our community wants more free arts and cultural activities, trails and to activate underutilised spaces. It is our aim to increase access to arts and culture activities through innovative use of new and emerging digital technologies to offer free and fun participatory experiences.
In collaboration with schools, foreshore committees, historical societies, chambers of commerce and artists, the Mornington Peninsula Shire has developed an augmented reality trail from Portsea to Rosebud.
We invite you to experience the Mornington Peninsula differently with a range of augmented reality (AR) experiences from Portsea to Rosebud. Be taken back in time and see what Portsea and Sorrento looked like more than one hundred years ago, experience a family of humpbacks flying through the sky at Blairgowrie, see the Rye Fisherman and Capel Sound dolphins murals come to life, fly a kite in the sky or even customise your own.
Take a photo, screenshot or video in the EyeJack app and share your experience on your socials. Don’t forget to tag us @mornpenartsandculture@ourartsandculture with hashtags #mpARtrail #artforeveryoneeveryday #morningtonpeninsula #augmentedreality
Humpback whales are sometimes seen in the area on their annual migration from the Southern Ocean to warmer waters around the Australian coastline. Watch in awe of their beauty, size and sounds as they swim around you!
