The 40 locations
Ipswich’s Google Street View Trekker project covers more than 40 locations around the heritage city as well as natural and adventure destinations across the region.
It’s a project that will showcase these locations to the world in a way only made possible by the latest technology.
The Google Trekker device, worn on a backpack or mounted on a kayak, is fitted with 15 cameras taking photos every two and a half seconds. The resulting footage offers 360-degree views of each destination as explored on foot by the Google Trekker – in this case adventurer Josh ‘The Bear’ Kerr.
City precincts will also be covered, including 88 Limestone – home of the popular Ungermann Brothers Icecream Parlour, Dovetails restaurant and Pumpyard Bar & Brewery – and the Top of Town stretch of restaurants, cafes and shops.
