DigiMacq is a multimedia tour that takes you on an adventure through the streets of Parramatta (New South Wales, Australia), 200 years ago.
Join Governor Lachlan Macquarie and experience his vision through the eyes and voices of the soldiers, scoundrels, convicts, clergy and free settlers who roamed the streets of Parramatta in colonial times. Get to know the man determined to lead the remote penal colony to a virtuous and prosperous future, on this fun and informative interactive tour.
If you take the tour whilst visiting Parramatta you will discover special codes that are placed on signs around the city. These codes unlock each story and special clues in the adventure. The complete walking tour takes around 45 minutes to do. Included are instructions, photos and maps to help you find these codes.
However, if you are visiting virtually from somewhere else in the world, you can still experience the stories in this great adventure.
