Tourism Australia’s New VR Campaign


Renowned Aussie actor Chris Hemsworth is the voice of Tourism Australia’s latest ad campaign, “There’s Nothing Like Australia”. The campaign highlights Australia’s coastal and aquatic experiences, with its core message being that Australia is “a place you feel”. Beautifully aligned with our own principles here at Robertson Gardens, we reckon they’ve hit the nail on the head. If you’re yet to see the video, you can watch it via the link below.


Demonstrating some awesome technological application, Tourism Australia will bring the Australian experience to life using virtual reality technology. Potential visitors to our country will be able to fully immerse themselves in the Australian experience like never before. It’s a very exciting use of VR tech, and we’re bound to see its use crop up more and more throughout 2016. Imagine, in the not too distant future, you walk into a travel agency, pick somewhere you’d like to go, put on a piece of headgear, and suddenly it’s like you’re there. It would be the perfect travel teaser. It is such a sci-fi concept that is actually becoming a reality, and this latest campaign from Tourism Australia and Chris Hemsworth certainly teases at its potential. It’s a very exciting prospect for all facets of the industry, and we’re looking forward to delivering on the promises these tourism campaigns provide, because as good as the tech gets, nothing is like the real thing. 😉

Summer in the Gardens


The sun is well and truly blazing in the great south-east, and while the heat is heavy, there’s no shortage of things to see, do and explore. Tight budget? Why not base yourself in Brisbane – here at Robertson Gardens in one of our fully self-contained apartments – as you spend the days discovering the magic of the area.

From the theme parks and beautiful beaches on the Gold Coast to the cool delicious parks at Southbank; there truly is something for everyone. Make the stay an adventure in itself!

Additionally, you’re only 2km to Sunnybank, renowned for its fabulous Asian restaurants, and only 2.5km to the massive Westfield Garden City shopping centre.
