Historical Panoramas showcases modern-day and historic panoramic images of Perth and Fremantle – some more than a century old – showing how the two cities have changed over time.

Andrew Woods, Manager of the Curtin HIVE (Hub for Immersive Visualisation and eResearch) will take you on a virtual tour back in time to show the development of Perth and Fremantle from as far back as the 1860s. Joel Newman, Director of UAV company Elevo will provide insights on how drones were used to capture modern day panoramas from historical locations that are now no longer accessible.
