Virtual Reality Equipment

We’re excited to announce that our Virtual Reality (VR) headsets have a permanent home at the Wonthaggi Library branch. Come in during business hours to experience another world through a VR headset.

What is virtual reality? 

Virtual reality is the term used to describe a three-dimensional, computer generated environment that can be explored and interacted with by a person using a virtual reality headset. 

What games do you have?

We have a number of games and experiences, and will be adding to our collection over time. You can play interactive games, and ‘visit’ various places, including an Antarctic research station and a medieval castle. Our most popular games/experiences are –

  • The Blue – an underwater experience.
  • Open Brush – 3d art/painting
  • Fruit Ninja
  • Beat Saber
  • Allumette – an immersive story
  • Spider Man Far from Home
  • Zombie Hobby.

Where is the VR equipment set up?

It is permanently set up in a designated space towards the back of the library.

Are there any age restrictions?

VR is not recommended for people under the age of 13. 

Time limits – 

You will get a minimum of 30 minutes with the headset. When someone else is waiting, the player is informed and asked to finish up within the next half hour. The equipment can only be used during library business hours.

Can I book a time to play?

We are currently only taking bookings for groups visiting the library. Please be advised that there may be a wait time during busy periods, including the school holidays.

Cleaning procedures –

All VR equipment, including the mask and hand controllers, is wiped down with antibacterial wipes after each use.

Do I need a library card to play?

Yes! You’ll need to visit the service desk to check out the VR controllers for in-branch use. The VR equipment and games cannot be checked out for use outside of the library branch.
