South Australian biodiversity gallery

Take a walk through a transect of South Australia, from the hot and dry north to the deep oceans of the south.

This gallery tells the unique story of our state’s diverse wildlife and environmental regions: arid, temperate, coastal and marine.

More than 12,000 individual models were hand-made to create this gallery, along with historical taxidermy specimens from the Museum’s mammals and birds collections. The gallery also features touch screen resource libraries, film clips, electronic labelling, interactive specimen draws and vibrant displays.

It is a visually and mentally stimulating experience for visitors of all ages.

Discover the things you can do in your own backyard to help conserve the wonderful natural heritage of South Australia, and learn how to safely explore and appreciate our beautiful natural assets.
