About This Game

New Zealand-based Antarctic Heritage Trust partnered with Auckland University of Technology (AUT) to create a ground-breaking virtual reality experience of Sir Edmund Hillary’s Antarctic hut. A fully immersive experience, which includes a guided tour through the hut, it celebrates what Hillary’s 23-man team achieved in their mission to further science and exploration in the world’s most extreme environment.

The Trust recently finished conservation work on the building and is pleased to be able to share this iconic part of Antarctic history and important cultural heritage site with people around the world.

This virtual reality experience celebrates New Zealand’s first presence in Antarctica as part of the Trans-Antarctic Expedition and International Geophysical Year and shares what life was like on the ice.

Explore the Antarctic Heritage Trust website ( for more information about Sir Ed and his team’s expeditions in Antarctica. Learn more about the pioneering science, Sir Ed’s expedition to the South Pole, Antarctic wildlife, dogs on the ice and Antarctic Heritage Trust’s work conserving this iconic piece of New Zealand history.

The Trust gratefully acknowledges Dulux NZ as the national tour sponsor as well as Antarctica New Zealand (logistics partner) and Staples VR (developer).
