Our Country is suitable for strollers and is wheelchair accessible. For all accessibility information, please visit the accessibility page here.
Is there pram parking available?
Please note we do not have pram parking and therefore prams must be accompanied at all times.
What special effects are used in Our Country?
Our Country features low light, mist, loud noises, artistic lighting, mirrored surfaces and footage featuring flashing lighting and some quick edit styles.
Photo sensitive people or anyone with a compromised sense of balance should take care and assess their own risk. While the projected images and footage within the experience are mostly slow-moving, if you are sensitive to moving light or have been diagnosed with photosensitive epilepsy, please be advised that some moving light may trigger seizures in some people. For the best experience and to maintain personal safety, patrons should proceed at a low pace through the experience.
Audio sensitive people are encouraged to bring their own noise-cancelling headphones, or earplugs – which will provide some protection from noises that can’t be avoided.
