The Smart City digital walking tour is a self-guided walk designed to show you the different technologies we are building into the new Maroochydore City Centre. There are lots of fun facts about how these technologies work, why we’re using them and their benefits.
The tour is about 1 kilometre, and consists of 9 zones. It will take around 30 minutes to complete the full tour.
Start the tour at the corner of First Avenue and Aerodrome Road to enjoy the full experience – or you can explore each zone at your leisure. Take your time to allow the content to download on your mobile.

How does the tour work?
Your welcome tour map indicates where you will find beacons. Each location interactive screen will point you to the next smart object along your walk.
You will also find smart object symbols on objects at these waypoints. Your tour will activate automatically using your Bluetooth connection when you are in close proximity to these smart beacons.
Interactive scratchies and certificates of completion
During your tour, three interactive scratchies appear at various locations. Scratch the image with your finger to see how you’re progressing. You must complete all 9 zones to receive a certificate of completion.
