The Duryea Panorama was not painted but made up of a series of photographs. Townsend Duryea took this circular view of Adelaide late in 1865. His pictures, fourteen in all, were taken from the scaffolding around the newly completed tower of the Adelaide Town Hall.

He began in the morning, facing north, and worked his way around the tower in an anti-clockwise direction to avoid the sun shining into his camera lens. Joined together, the pictures give a birdís view of colonial Adelaide.

The 1865 Duryea Panorama has been rejuvenated by Fusion as an interactive VR (Virtual Reality) experience for the digital age. This new media presentation allows the viewer to explore the panorama and gain an insight into the various landmarks of Adelaide in 1865
