The Ultimate Guide to Exploring NSW State Forests
When the Forestry Corporation of NSW contacted Mobiddiction to develop a mobility solution, they wanted to make mobile a part of the user experience in NSW forests. They wanted a utility for visitors to view and navigate recreational areas and points of interest. This would be their first public facing app.
Three important things
”My Visit – NSW State Forests aims to place State Forests front of mind in visitor markets and the tourism industry alike.
Forest information at your fingertips.
Part of the FCNSW campaign, My Visit – NSW celebrates State Forests as the place to go for an abundance of nature-based opportunities.
Visitors can discover a rainforest, explore a walking track, go bushwalking with dogs (where permitted on a leash) or get their heart pumping on a cross-country horse-ride. They can fish in a river, take a dip in a creek, listen to stillness broken by birdsong or even enjoy the roar and spectacle of rally cars racing full throttle over open forest roads.
The app enhances these experiences by providing forest information and maps at visitors’ fingertips.
A key requirement of the brief was the maps in the app needed to work offline. There is either no mobile network or intermittent coverage in some state forests.
FCNSW chose Mobiddiction to deliver this solution because we are perceived as the mobility experts. FCNSW felt they they could rely on an experienced technology partner as they were embarking on this journey for the first time.
