Ned Kelly vir­tual re­al­ity ex­pe­ri­ence at old gaol

Mansfield Courier - - Property Guide -

VIS­I­TORS to the Old Mel­bourne Gaol will have the chance to meet the real Ned Kelly in an all-new vir­tual re­al­ity ex­pe­ri­ence which opened in De­cem­ber for a lim­it­ed­time only.

If you’ve ever won­dered what it would be like to come face-to-face with one of Aus­tralia’s most no­to­ri­ous crim­i­nals, Think You Know Me? will take you up close and per­sonal with the renowned out­law dur­ing an in­ti­mate vir­tual re­al­ity en­counter.

Rec­om­mended for ages 12 and over, par­tic­i­pants will have the op­por­tu­nity to un­cover the real Ned and im­merse them­selves in his fi­nal mo­ments while re­vis­it­ing one of the most talked-about tri­als and ex­e­cu­tions in Aus­tralian his­tory.

Chil­dren aged five and over will also have the chance to have their own Ned Kelly en­counter, with A Word From Ned; a code-break­ing scav­enger hunt around ev­ery nook and cranny of the gaol to dis­cover an im­por­tant mes­sage from Ned’s side of the story.
