Live Nation Australia, BBC Studios and Moon Eye Productions have announced that the BBC Earth Experience, which debuted in London earlier this year, will open in Melbourne next month.
The attraction features bespoke narration from Sir David Attenborough, and enables attendees to experience different continents and the natural world, all in one place.
BBC Studios’ television series ‘Seven Worlds, One Planet’ will be projected on a number of multi-angle screens. Visitors will be able to take a 360-degree audio visual journey as they witness environments come to life.
The Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre will host the new tourist attraction.
“BBC Studios is the biggest global producer of natural history programming with ground-breaking shows that are enjoyed by a billion people around the world,” said Fiona Lang, general manager of BBC Studios Australia and New Zealand.
“The response to the BBC Earth Experience in the UK has been amazing, audiences have been loving seeing this incredible content being showcased and elevated in this way. Seven Worlds, One Planet was a hit when it was screened in Australia on Channel Nine and and on our own BBC Earth channel on Foxtel and Fetch, and I’m thrilled to partner with Moon Eye Productions and Live Nation to bring this experience to Australia for people to enjoy.”
Luke Hede, vice-president of touring at Live Nation Australia, added: “This collaboration with Visit Victoria, BBC Studios and Moon Eye Productions will deliver a spectacular and educational experience unlike any other. Sir David Attenborough is a global treasure, and the BBC Earth Experience marries his message about the challenges nature faces in today’s world alongside the world’s most incredible footage. Victorians and visitors to the state are in for a real treat.”
‘Seven Worlds, One Planet’ was the BBC’s most watched factual tv show of the year when it premiered in the UK, and a popular BBC natural history series in Australia.
