Quinn’s Post Trench Experience
An extraordinary sensory experience opened at The Great War Exhibition in Wellington in April. Created by Sir Peter Jackson, The Quinn’s Post Trench Experience combines his world-acclaimed storytelling artistry with a personal passion for World War I military history and stories of the experiences of New Zealand soldiers.

.

Set at Quinn’s Post, a tenuously held frontline position on the Gallipoli Peninsula, visitors enter another world of the grit and hardship experienced by New Zealand soldiers during this ill-fated campaign. With the help of cutting-edge technology, visitors are guided through Quinn’s Post by the ghosts of New Zealand soldiers. Guests experience the sights, sounds and even smells of Gallipoli in 1915.

Great care was taken to ensure that the terraces, tunnels and trenches accurately reflect those of Quinn’s Post. This addition to The Great War Exhibition provides visitors the opportunity to experience the bleak and dangerous conditions soldiers endured during the Gallipoli campaign.

Over 350 intricately timed DMX lighting, audio and video circuits are controlled over a dedicated network. More than 50 speakers and 38 amplifiers installed throughout the experience ensure visitors feel totally immersed in the atmosphere.

The Exhibition is open daily between 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. Admission fees apply.
