Victorian government recreates Melbourne CBD in Minecraft

Category: News

Mini Melbourne is a world-first resource brought to life for the Metro Tunnel Education Program. In partnership with the Victorian Department of Education and Training, we have created 600,000m2 of Melbourne’s city centre in Minecraft.

Apparently there’s this thing called Minecraft that people go nutso over so this is kinda a big deal for them.

The Vic government, as a part of the new Metro Tunnel project, have released Mini Melbourne as an interactive education resource for teachers.

The Minecraft recreation includes a multiplayer game called the “Metro Tunnel Archaeology Adventure” (catchy I know), where players explore the excavated areas of the Metro Tunnel in search of items of archaeological significance.
