Immerse yourself in a world of sound with this self-guided augmented reality experience. Download the free mobile app ‘Aurality’ and select ‘Listening Underwater’ to discover more than 100 aquatic soundscapes across the Sunshine Coast.

Take a walk through Cotton Tree and Mooloolaba anytime during the festival, where you will hear various aquatic sounds triggered by location and movement.

Don’t miss the accompanying Immersive Performance.

The sonic discovery explores aquatic ecosystems that cover more than 70% of Earth's surface - drawing on a decade of Leah Barclay’s hydrophone (underwater) recordings. From the smallest micro-crustaceans to the largest marine mammals on the planet, Listening Underwater explores the diverse sonic properties of water to reveal the acoustic ecologies beneath the surface of oceans, lakes and rivers across the planet.
