Explore the Cross River Rail Experience Centre - now open

The Cross River Rail Experience Centre is a community engagement and education hub developed in partnership with Queensland Museum, providing detailed project information, digital engagement experiences and learning opportunities for visiting members of the public as well as school groups.

The Experience Centre is also a space where the Delivery Authority can meet with community representatives and groups, deliver a school engagement program, host stakeholder information sessions and assist our engineers with ongoing design and delivery of the project’s future tunnels and stations.

Expected to remain open and in use not only for the duration of construction but potentially as an information centre and innovation hub ongoing, the Cross River Rail Experience Centre is a free immersive digital experience not to be missed.

Why we need an Experience Centre

Cross River Rail is Queensland’s largest infrastructure project and it is important the public have opportunities to learn more about the project and understand why it is being built, how it will be built and what it means for the future of public transport in South East Queensland.

The Cross River Rail Experience Centre will also unlock Cross River Rail’s potential as an education opportunity for Queensland school children with interactive digital visualisation technologies, STEM learning resources, cultural heritage content, project progress information and geological artefacts.

In addition, the Experience Centre has been developed as a ‘digital first’ innovation centre for use by engineers and designers who will use the sophisticated digital technologies and digital content to assist with design and construction of Cross River Rail over the next five years.

How the experience centre will be used to assist with Cross River Rail Delivery

The Experience Centre’s Reality Theatre allows engineers and designers a unique opportunity to put themselves at scale into any aspect of the Project’s built environment, using an interactive 3D model of the project that is true to current reference design.

This can also be achieved without the need for VR headsets, which allows groups to visit and discuss built outcomes without the barrier or seclusion that comes with a more standard VR environment.

This new resource is also available to whole-of-government, to Cross River Rail’s construction partners and to numerous stakeholder groups engaged in delivery of the project. Unlocking a myriad of opportunities where immersion in a virtual twin of the built project will stimulate innovation and lead to improved outcomes.

In partnership with the Queensland Museum

The Queensland Museum Network have supported the development of the Experience Centre with advice and expertise to assist in the refinement of the Experience Centre’s design and content as well as providing historical content for use in the exhibits.
