‘Experience is Everything’ was the conference theme where international delegates and nature celebrities, including David Bellamy, got to see how the latest GPS Video Tours can deliver the ideal Eco-Tourism experience.

The ‘ECO RANGER’ automated video tour demonstrates how new technology can be used to “explore the world without impact”. Using the rugged, waterproof GPS Ranger ™ devices the attendees were able to experience the natural beauty of Noosa Heads National Park whilst receiving an informative, educational and entertaining tour.

Eco-Tourism and Experiential Tourism are among the highest growth sector of the industry. This innovative, low impact and flexible solution allows tourists to get out and explore whilst receiving the ultimate personal guided experience. Australia’s unique position and opportunity to lead the world in sustainable tourism practices were a key focus and technology like this can make a real difference.

The innovative video tour device uses GPS to trigger short movies that educate the user about the key things at that specific location. As you explore, the videos and narrative automatically play whilst the stereo speakers allow you to share the experience within a small group. The system is very flexible and can be set up to present videos in any language as well as deliver information suitable for any visitor from young children to university professors.

Using these tools the ability to educate the modern independent visitor without intrusive signage, disposable printed material or a significant carbon footprint has arrived in this pocket sized video guide.

The content for the Noosa National Park journey was created by environmental experts and gives visitors a unique insight into many aspects that make Noosa National Park so special. The ‘ECO RANGER’ tour will inform you about everything from the local surf beaches, the prized Biosphere status and formation of the landscapes to the cultural history, insights into local flora & fauna and much more. With a range of interactive and engaging ‘quiz questions’ you cannot help to learn something along the way.

This revolutionary concept has also been prepared as an iPhone & iPad application that allows visitors to explore with their own GPS enabled technology. Introduced into Australia after significant success across the United States, these flexible solutions give a new dimension to independent traveling. From parks to museums, the use of technology puts all the best information directly into the palm of your hand.
