Summary The ubiquity of smartphones has led to a shift in the way that content is created and consumed. This shift allows media makers to tell mixed-reality documentary stories that are highly contextualised to various places and that offer new perspectives on those places, thereby creating exciting, new contexts and auratic experiences. This chapter offers an insight into the creation of such projects by using a practice-based research approach to examine the development of a mobile walking tour app in partnership with Winda Mara Aboriginal Corporation in western Victoria, Australia. The app augments the Tyrendarra Indigenous Protected Area (IPA) to provide visitors with a glimpse of Gunditjmara culture and history, including its prominence in Australian Indigenous knowledge as "one of Australia's earliest and largest aquaculture ventures" (Victorian Department of the Environment, Tyrendarra indigenous protected area, 2003).
