Virtual Warrane: An Aboriginal contribution to the vision

"Aboriginal multimedia expert Brett Leavy is exhibiting realistic simulations of Sydney Cove and Circular Quay before the arrival of colonial settlers in the late 18th century.

Using Unity (beta) game engine software, he and a team of modellers, photographers and sound artists have set up at Sydney's colonial-era Customs House a wall of media screens and a video gaming room to educate visitors about the early vegetation, wildlife, fishing and culture of the original residents of what is now the Sydney business district. (Ghostly wireframes of some of the current CBD towers, and the Sydney Opera House, can be navigated as an overlay to the underlying environmental simulation.)"
