When it comes to immersive experiences, Brisbane certainly isn’t lacking. Whether you’re wandering through the kaleidoscopic play space of Imaginaria, solving an escape room puzzle, or embracing the weird at a whacky night market, there are plenty of worlds you can explore without leaving Brisbane. Here are the immersive experiences in Brisbane we think you should try.
A whacky immersive night market is can be found in West End every Friday evening. Westoria is home to art, performances and themed spaces. Not to mention plenty of signature cocktails, eats, live music, as well as tarot card readings, and more.
120 Jane St, West End, every Friday from 4pm – midnight
Play Moves features a series of six interactive experiences, where you as the viewer can engage with the art through touch and immersion.
Slow Art Collective‘s giant rainbow Archi-Loom installation is a must-see with its massive web made from rainbow thread, bamboo and other recycled fabrics. You can also sink into the Affirmation Tub, a faux fur lined claw foot bath tub, courtesy of artist Michelle Vine.

As far as escape rooms go, it doesn’t get much better than Fox In A Box. Originating in Vienna, they’ve now got over 30 venues worldwide, one of them being in Brisbane City. You can expect high-tech puzzle rooms such as ‘The Zodiac Killer’ and ‘Zombie Lab’ which’ll have you fully immersed. Best of all, the fun can be enjoyed by the whole family.

Imaginaria, the hour-long journey through light, sound, and scent, has sold-out sessions when it opened in Melbourne and wowed visitors with its displays. Brisbane has been no different except for the fact that we’ve been treated to eight brand-new rooms in which to lose ourselves within the kaleidoscopic adventure.

What first caught our eye about Neighbourhood Earth was the tagline that it was developed in partnership with NASA’s George C. Marshall Space Flight Center and the US Space and Rocket Center because if NASA’s had a say in the exhibition, then we wanted to check it out.
A trip to the cinema and an art exhibition in one, Neighbourhood Earth is an interactive activation for anyone interested in learning more about space exploration.
