Ngarandi

We unearthed stories from the world's oldest living culture and brought them into the modern world.

Challenge

Making information accessible

Participation in Indigenous tourism experiences was declining. Whilst market demand for authentic, cultural experiences was growing at a fast pace, people weren't able to find the right information and didn’t realise these experiences were available in metropolitan areas.

Solution

Australia’s Australia-first Aboriginal AR app

We found a way to surface stories to a market hungry for accessible, engaging cultural content: Ngarandi—the first step in allowing Australians to better understand and gain insights into the 60,000-year-old Aboriginal peoples and culture.
