This paper profiles the Table Cape VR Education Technology Project titled "Walking with Giants, "which was designed to offer an immersive learning experience for community storytelling. Table Cape is located in Wynyard, a town in rural Northwest Tasmania, Australia; it is an extinct volcano renowned for its rich tourism and heritage values. As part of a wider education technology and digital tourism initiative, Walking with Giants provides educators, students, and community members with the opportunity to visualise the high-fidelity 3D scanned terrain of Table Cape in virtual reality. Currently, the project is being exhibited at the Wonders of Wynyard Exhibition and Visitor Information Centre-a joint initiative involving creators and researchers from the University of Tasmania, industry partners from Business Northwest, and the Waratah Wynyard Council. In this paper, we describe the technical aspects of this digital technologies project and discuss the specialised knowledge-based requirements for teaching and learning incorporating such resources.
