The sites and stories behind Teneriffe’s rich history come alive through a walking tour app launched in July 2020.
The Explore Teneriffe app, developed by Teneriffe Progress Association and IT students from QUT, highlights the history of the area from the woolstores and sugar refinery to WWII air raid shelters, the submarine base, the trams and trains, the history of Riverwalk and tells the story of how the area has developed over the years.
The app’s technical creators, IT and engineering students Oliver Chahoud and Ryan Andersen said they had come up with something unique in the way the app could be managed and added to.“We created the app so that it can be updated. It is dynamic and easy for the Progress Association to use,” Mr Chahoud said.
The Explore Teneriffe walking tour starts at the bus and ferry stop and takes you by a series of points of interest with a map, photos and commentary guiding you through the attractions.
Although it takes a couple of minutes to download the app, the project is the result of more than 1 -2 months work from the group of four QUT students.
