Autio, a mobile audio entertainment app for travel that uses geolocation technology to automatically play stories of nearby landmarks, cities & towns has been launched in Australia.
Headquartered in California, the app features over 10,000 stories in the United States & now hundreds in Australia, initially focusing on Victoria in the region between Bendigo, Echuca, and Castlemaine.
The app won the Webby for Best Travel App & has been featured as App of the Day by Apple.
Autio was co-founded in the US by actor Kevin Costner, who says, “I joined Autio with the ambition to capture stories across America, and am excited to bring the Autio App to Australia.
“From the first peoples and colonists, to the great inventors and pioneers of today – new stories are added every week”.
Production Director of Autio Australia, Daryl Missen, says, “We have a team of writers, narrators, and audio professionals excited to be producing regional stories from Australia’s past. Now Australian travellers have an app to listen and learn in audio form as they drive.”

The Autio app is now available for download, free from the Apple App Store.
