With the Queensland Explorer Holiday Planner iPad app, you can explore Queensland, Australia via spherical panoramas. The 360º viewing experience is powered by our technology using the Sphere Development Kit (SDK).
To help you plan your ultimate holiday visit to Queensland – including accommodations, tours, attractions, excursions and destination info – the Tourism and Events Queensland app curates the best of Queensland digital content from Sphere, blog posts, YouTube, and the Australian Tourism Data Warehouse (ATDW).
“The Sphere content featured on the Queensland Explorer iPad app is awesome. These pieces of content add a whole new dimension to the app and allow users of the application to feel as though they are standing right there in the destination. For example we’ve got great panoramas where the user will feel as though they are swimming in the middle of a school of fish off Cairns or in the middle of a flock of boobies on Lady Elliot Island.”
— Chris Chambers, Director of Digital Marketing
Within the app, you can explore via grid or map–based discovery. When you find a piece of Queensland you like, you can 'love' it, and share it with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and by email. Plus, you can us the Trip Planner feature to plan your holiday. Add, edit and plan multiple trips (or daydream) as you go. Then download your itinerary to iBooks or email it to your friends.
You can download the Queensland Explorer app for free from the App Store.
