Welcome to XTALENT

This site is a launchpad for a number of diverse passions I now pursue in my spare time. Have a quick look around at what there is on offer.

Virtual Walkaboutsvirtually go on nature walks to beautiful natural places.
Half the fun of going somewhere is the actual journey involved in getting there!
Being disabled or infirm should not preclude you from enjoying some of Australia’s most beautiful nature walks.
A unique experience; no effort required and no other people on the track to spoil the experience. Better still exercise as best you can using the virtual track before you as motivation.
The 2006 Walkabout Series have unique seismic didjeridu soundtracks performed by Tjupurru.

DAG – The Digital Art Gallery

For Artists and Art Lovers

This is a prototype exploratory project developed for creating an immersive experience for visitors to an Art Gallery.


Visitors may explore the Digital Art Gallery (DAG) as an Avatar in a Password Protected Virtual World.
Social distancing is not required “in-world” and you can even FLY.
Check out this video to see how to Move your Avatar.

The Digital Art Gallery is suitable for children.
They must, however, be supervised at all times in real life by an adult.
