Acknowledgement of Country

Sandpit respectfully works across the unceded lands of the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung peoples of the Eastern Kulin Nations, as well as the Kaurna and Yugambeh peoples. We recognise and respect their continued cultural, spiritual and technological practices.

We also extend this to all First Nations peoples across the land known as Australia and pay respects to their Ancestors and Elders past and present.

As the very first storytellers and technologists, First Nations peoples possess invaluable knowledge and perspectives that are crucial to the work that we do across both the physical and digital realms.

Australian Sports Museum

Australian Sports Museum

Sandpit created a suite of fun interactive exhibits for the Australian Sports Museum

These four playful digital experiences – suited to both kids and adults – allow visitors to learn about the rules and the history of cricket and horse-racing. We collaborated with illustrators Chris Edser and Nick Lewis.

The challenge of this project was to create physically robust experiences that could withstand forceful interaction from school groups and over-excited cricket tragics.

Laws and Field Positions

We created a huge interactive cricket pitch projection. Visitors can tap players on the pitch to learn more about different fielding positions. And they can learn cricket rules and umpiring signals by tapping on a very officious koala umpire.


Our Headliners experience introduces visitors to famous and infamous moments in cricketing history – from the Bodyline Ashes series to Shane Warne’s 700th wicket. Select a player from the Where’s Wally-style illustration on the massive touchscreen to discover their story.

Test match figures

Remember the iconic Test Match board game? This experience sees visitors manoeuvring giant Test Match-style figurines around a cricket pitch on the museum’s floor. Move your figurine to a new position on the pitch to hear cricket sounds and stories, as well as interviews with famous cricketers.

A Day at the Races

A Day at the Races sees visitors racing their own horses in a virtual horserace. First, visitors decorate their own racehorses on sheets of paper with coloured pencils. These pictures then magically appear on a huge digital projection screen. Race your friends and win a trophy!
