A digital post card from the Capital to the world
Visit Canberra has deployed Interlike Selfie Station as a permanent installation in the picturesque corner of the visitor information centre. Always on, set and forget social photo booth enables visitors to create a fun themed photo and share it with friends and family back home in real time.
The Interlike social photo station is a very popular engagement activity at the centre. It is especially popular in Spring when the City plays host to the annual Floriade - Canberra's most iconic annual tourism event and Australia's premier spring festival. Interlike photo marketing has contributed to Visit Canberra's recent success, winning 2017 Category for Visitor Information Services Award Canberra Region Tourism Awards.
