Our full day Reality Brews Gold Coast brewery and VR tour is anything but virtual


This reality doesn’t bite, because that would be a different tour. On our Reality Brews Gold Coast brewery tour, guests start their day with a completely unique, out-of-this-world virtual reality gaming session at Zero Latency.

After getting the blood pumping and working up a sweat, it’s time to cool down with some boutique beers at some of the Gold Coast’s best breweries. The reality may be virtual, but the beers are definitely real.

Must book 8 guests for a private gaming experience and to select your preferred game option.

Our Reality Brews tour starts at Zero Latency then visits three Gold Coast venues.
We may mix it up a bit, but below is a rough itinerary of the day.
 Lunch is generally served at the first brewery we visit.

We start the day at Zero Latency with a 30-minute virtual reality gaming experience. This is not your old-skool VR, this is as high tech as it gets.

Put on the VR headset and pick up the weapon – no backpacks needed! You are about to be transported into the virtual world. Once in, you’re free to move and explore as you please – comfortably and naturally, just like you do in the real world. You’re completely untethered. There aren’t any wires or walls to get in the way of your virtual reality adventures.

Please visit Zero Latency’s FAQ page for full player requirements and restrictions.

After an unforgettable experience that you’ll be talking about for days, it’s time to hit the cold beers.

With so many options across the Gold Coast, the venues we visit will vary on the day.

Options may include: Black Hops HQ, Black Hops II, BOBs, Hound & Stag, Madocke, Lost Palms, Burleigh Brewing, Precinct Brewing, Currumbin Valley Brewing, Balter Brewing

Where a location is indicated, we will pick up you outside the venue so please keep an eye out for our van – you can’t miss it!

Pick Ups:
