ID/Lab is working with Parks Victoria (as part of the Taylor Cullity Lethlean team) on the development of a wayshowing system for the Point Nepean National Park site.
Point Nepean National Park is a popular tourist destination. Besides spectacular ocean scenery, the park is home to Fort Nepean, established in 1882, and the historic Quarantine Station first established in 1852, which was closed to the public for almost 150 years. It is located about 100km South of Melbourne.
Point Nepean NP presents a fabulous opportunity for ‘story-telling’. The wayshowing system should not only be a functional navigation tool, but enhance the visitors’ planning & experience by divulging the myriad of stories the site has to offer – historical, ecological, recreational. Online, hand-held and real-world experiences will all be considered and integrated to provide for a wayshowing system that invites the user to explore the park physically and educationally.
