Wander through a simulated Melbourne in total darkness to explore your perception of the world.

A Dialogue in the Dark experience lasts for one hour and takes place in complete darkness.

During the tour, you're equipped with:

  1. 1. A white cane to assist with wayfinding

    This everyday aid—frequently used by people with low vision or blindness—provides a sense of orientation, and protects you by identifying obstacles of all kinds.

  2. 2. A skilled guide to lead you on your journey

    All tours are facilitated by specially-trained guides who are blind or have low vision. Your guide knows exactly how to navigate the experience.

What to expect

Your tour guide will lead you through a series of environments—both everyday and iconically Melbourne—on an incredibly familiar journey in the unfamiliarity of complete darkness. Slowly but surely, an invisible landscape emerges, made of sounds, scents, wind, textures, and temperatures.
