Tyrendarra

In semester 2, 2016, Master of Media students took part in a 10-day field trip to learn about Gunditjmara culture, land and people.

The students are collaborating with members of Winda Mara Aboriginal Corporation on a mobile app to be used in the promotion of the Tyrendarra Indigenous Protected Area, near Portland in Victoria's south-west. Currently in post-production, the work-integrated learning (WIL) project is being created as part of the Collaborative Media Project course. The app uses GPS technology to trigger audio, video, photographic and textual content as the user progresses through the site. The content includes interviews with Gunditjmara Elders, rangers and tourism officers, and aims to enhance tourism to the area. The mobile app will be released in 2017 by Winda Mara on the Apple and Google app stores.
