AUSTRALIA’S LEADING 3D & XR CREATIVE STUDIO
3D Walkabout is an XR and 3D creative studio creating cutting-edge visualisations and applications for businesses. Find out more about our story and meet the team.
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.

Meet the Team
Schedule a video chat with one of our team to discuss your business needs and to see how we can potentially help. Perfect whether you are just in the early research stages and want to brainstorm your ideas or you have a clear vision of what you require and just need a quote.
We'll work closely with you to define the exact scope of work outlining clearly our solution to your business challenge. After some in depth discussions we'll create a final scope of work document that once signed off means our team can get their heads down and start work.
You will be assigned an experienced Project Manager who will be your point of contact throughout the development phase. A skilled team will be assembled to work on the project drawing in all the necessary skillsets required. This team will meet regularly to ensure that all timelines are being met.
Through your project manager you will receive regular updates and reports clearly outlining the progress and ensuring all the required assets are delivered on time and in accordance with the scope of work. Development projects will run in two week sprints following the agile methodology.
Review & Revisions
This is your opportunity to give our team any detailed feedback you have to ensure that we are meeting your expectations both in the scope of work and deliverables. Depending on the project scale this may involve UAT testing. Our team will work through each revision and issue a final production version.
The final stage! We'll hand over the deliverable files for you to publish. However this isn't usually the end of the journey for the relationship. We'll keep in touch and always be available to help with any technical support issues or further rounds of development should the need arise.

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.
