Take a wild virtual tour of Australia

While the global coronavirus pandemic has meant travel plans and holidays have had to come to a halt, keen travellers can still explore many different parts of Australia - all without leaving their homes.

Once it's safe to travel again, make sure you plan to see their work in real life, but until then, settle in and let your mind travel.

Dive into a 360-degree video from Tourism Australia's collection and immerse yourself in some of Australia's most beautiful aquatic and coastal experiences - all from the comfort of your couch.

Join in feeding time at the zoo

Taronga Zoo Sydney and Taronga Western Plains Zoo Dubbo have gone virtual with the launch of Taronga TV.

Tune in daily for a packed schedule of keepers talks and shows, 24/7 live animal streams, amusing animal antics and behind-the-scenes sneak peeks at what the animals (and the keepers) actually get up to when the zoo is closed.

There will also be resources available for teachers and for parents who are home schooling and looking for fun and educational content for their children.
