The Billibellarys Walk App is a campus app tour created by the University of Melbourne as a self-guided narrative, from an Aboriginal perspective in order to educate the University’s community about the rich history on its grounds. The app was created using the App Builder Website and makes all of Wurundjeri people’s rich history easily accessible and serves as a tour guide, lecture and story all in one place.
Take a walk through Billibellary’s Country using Billibellary’s Walk App for your iPhone or iPad. This campus app tour allows users to experience Melbourne’s six seasons as they are subtly reconstructed as the context for understanding place and belonging for the Wurundjeri people. This app exposes users to the cultural interpretation of the land that the Wurundjeri people have inhabited for 40,000 years. Lying within the University of Melbourne’s built environment are the whispers and songs of the Wurundjeri people and their protection of important resources crucial to everyday life. This GPS enabled tour will help users feel, know and imagine the rich history of the Wurundjeri people and the land that they are so closely tied to.
