Western Australia’s ambitious Australian Biome is gaining momentum. DXN Limited has entered into a Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) with Australian Biome. Under the terms of the MOU, DXN and Australian Biome will be working towards an agreement to design and build the required data centre and underlying infrastructure for the Australian Biome entertainment precinct in Perth, Western Australia.
The Australian Biome is a unique proposed tourism development zoned for 15 hectares of bush land at the Perth Airport. The land has been set aside for the construction of five giant biodomes to showcase Australia’s diverse flora, fauna and indigenous culture in a new entertainment precinct. The project is supported by Tourism WA.
Requiring a large reliable digital framework, this new centre will aim to supercharge WA Tourism, with plans to implement state of the art advanced technologies, a primary environmental focus and diversity inclusion on all levels. Offering unique experiences of WA’s different regions, from desert to ocean, these exhibitions and interactive displays will educate, entertain and highlight one of the world’s oldest living cultures.
Founder and Chairman of the Australian Biome, Terrence Dewar said “The Australian Biome is not only a needed tourism attraction for Western Australia, it is a highly ambitious initiative, focussing on Western Australia’s identity, while aiming to replicate the success of global attractions such as the Eden Project in the UK. Beyond being a major Australian attraction and brand, the Australian Biome will be a platform to drive economic benefit for Australian regional tourism, create employment and also for Aboriginal Australians sharing vital knowledge of culture and ecological resources.” Mr Dewar added, “Being Australian owned and operated makes DXN Limited the perfect fit for this project. DXN have proven themselves to be both capable and accomplished at supporting Data Centre infrastructure projects and we look forward to working with them to develop the solution.”

Accessed by visitor/tourist and business operators and in its early stages of development, Biome software engineers and digital partners are developing a visitor and travel information digital platform codenamed “VIKTA” which aims to deliver “real time” GPS, GIS, analytical data and booking systems.
DXN’s CEO, Matthew Madden, had this to say about DXN’s involvement in the project, “We believe Australian Biome will fundamentally change the fabric of tourism in Western Australia. It is a privilege to be involved in bringing this environmental and tourist precinct to fruition.”
He added, “The first stage of this project is slated for WA, then future Biome project planning and construction will begin nationally across Australia. DXN is looking forward to the opportunity to bring this project to life.”
