Our Story

3D Walkabout was founded in January 2017 by Tim Brickle. Tim had been working in the digital space in various guises for the past 20 years running a successful ‘Red Letter Days’ style extreme sports agency in the UK and then later a boutique digital marketing agency here in Australia. After receiving a Google Cardboard a few years earlier for Christmas Tim started thinking about how this new VR technology could be utilised by small businesses to help them reach a new growing audience. That journey led to 360 panoramic photography and then onto Matterport’s 3D scanning technology.

Throughout 2017 Tim started scanning more and more properties in Perth in both the residential and commercial spaces building up big portfolio of clients in the home building sector. It was apparent that whilst the Matterport scans were great for built spaces the vast majority of new home designs were actually sold off-plan. Using the business relationships built up from the scanning Tim then set up a 3D rendering team to start to create renders and animations for these clients to help them sell more of their off-plan designs.

Always with an eye on the latest technologies and how they could be applied to businesses Tim then set up a small AR and VR development team creating applications for the property sector and then in the mining and Resources space. Using Unity and Unreal Engine 3D Walkabout starting creating more and more complex custom applications across a wide range of industries for a large variety of use cases from VR showrooms to AR package activations.

Today the 3D Walkabout team is about 20 strong and work across a range of XR and 3D technologies including: VR, AR, MR and 3D Web Development, 3D Scanning, 3D rendering & 3D Animations. We have staff in each major metro area across Australia and offer all our services to businesses nationwide. We are still super interested in finding out about the latest technologies, always excited to hear your crazy ideas and forever keen to find new and unique ways that we can make them a reality.

So that’s us. We’d love to hear about you and what you are cooking! Give us a call on 1300 00 3392 or contact us today for a chat.

Hey! I'm a graduate of the University of Manchester and I'm passionate about disruptive XR technology and the potential it has to revolutionise how people view and experience future planned physical spaces and environments.

Hi, I originate from the field of architecture and have drafted and designed for 8 years during which 3D modeling became my dominating interest. My love of architecture flowed into all things 3D like game design, world creation, animation, rendering and virtual tours. From 2014-2022 I ran my own business that tackled visual solutions for a variety of industries; real estate, engineering, architecture, machinery, tourism, and large new building developments in residential and industrial. Now I work alongside Tim managing our key ‘XR’ clients across a range of projects.

Mary

Project Manager
Hi. I'm a project manager here at 3D Walkabout and work on some of our more technical projects. I oversee the project delivery and communicate between you (the client) and our in-house team, that usually means 1-2 developers, a QA, UX/UI designer and the Directors. I manage the development sprints and ensure that the deliverables are dispatched correctly and on-time. When I'm not behind the keyboard I'm probably out trail running or hitting the road on my bike!

I'm self-taught and have worked as a freelance designer for a number of years before joining 3D Walkabout. I love the wide variation of projects that come across my desk. So whether we're working with your brand guidelines or need to come up with something unique I can make it look great for web, print or in-game / in-app content.

What our clients are saying

Stefan De BeerStefan De Beer

It's been a pleasure working with Tim and the team at 3D Walkabout. We had a vision of what the app could be and ultimately it exceeded our expectations. It's now part of the town heritage trail and offers our visitors the opportunity to learn more about some of the key historical landmarks whilst encouraging them to explore areas they may not have decided to visit.

David Willcox, Common GroundDavid Willcox, Common Ground


It's been great working with the guys at 3D Walkabout. They've now helped get our tender applications over the line on a number of projects. We're a proud Western Australian business so it's always good to work with others companies in WA at the top of their game.

Beth Butler, AlcoaBeth Butler, Alcoa


It was great working with the team at 3D Walkabout. The challenge was to find a unique way to engage visitors to their centre with a perfect balance of information and fun. Both the AR app and VR headset experience achieved these goals. We're really happy with the result.

TRANSAFE WA engaged 3D Walkabout to develop the 3d virtual reality content for our safety truck project. Tim and Jamie’s knowledge and ideas gave us outcomes that met and exceeded our initial scope of work.

It’s been an absolute pleasure working with the team at 3D Walkabout and I highly recommend their services.

Their ability to create an extremely detailed visual, which is so life like, is amazing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can we meet face to face?

Sure we can. If you are local to one of our team then let’s do it. But… thanks to Covid everyone now seems to love video calls, us included. Less time wasted travelling, better for the environment and easy to share information on projects and presentations. We promise we’ll even get dressed properly and not be sitting here in our pajamas. Also thanks to excellent online management software and messaging we can easily stay in touch and are easily available if you need us.

How much does X cost?

This is probably the most common question we get asked. For renders and Matterport scans we have simple price lists so that’s easy. However for all software development jobs and animations we often need a bit of input from you, this maybe a storyboard, it may mean sharing files etc. So bear with us, the more information we get the more accurate we can estimate a job and the happier you’ll be with the result!

Why should we work with you?

Well, we’re a bunch of very friendly people who are very passionate about what we do. Our team has a wide range of knowledge and experience built up over many years. We’re not pushy and we’re happy to share our time with you to make sure you are getting the best possible solution, even if that means you going elsewhere if we can’t help. We also have very competitive pricing across everything we do, we’re not super expensive and ultimately you’ll be getting incredible value for money.

Where are you based?

Our head office is in Perth but we have remote staff now working across most of Australia including all the major metro areas. If you ring us on 1300 00 3392 or contact us then we’ll make sure you are speaking to an expert who can either brainstorm your ideas or get you booked in for renders or a property scan.
