Virtual Reality Technology and Tourism
When we think of travelling, we might think of flying by plane overseas or taking a road trip down the coastline, however with the evolution of Virtual Reality Technology not all travel is now being experienced physically. Virtual Reality tourism is a rapidly emerging new form of tourism, which can offer people the chance to see destinations they might not see otherwise in a full 360 degree experience.

Vikki Schaffer Program Co-ordinator and Lecturer in Tourism, Leisure and Event Management at the University of the Sunshine Coast joined us on the line to answer our questions.
