"The biodiversity of South Australia's oceans, deserts and forests is truly exceptional. The South Australian Museum's Biodiversity Gallery celebrates and helps conserve this wonderful asset." — Sir David Attenborough
The South Australian Biodiversity Gallery is a transect through South Australia, from the hot and dry north through to the deep oceans of the south. It tells the unique story of South Australia's diverse wildlife, divided into four distinct environmental regions: arid, temperate, coastal and marine.
It is a comprehensive introduction and a conduit for visitors to South Australia to further explore and appreciate our natural assets.
The gallery features touch screen resource libraries, film clips, electronic labelling, interactive specimen drawers containing some of the museum's extensive collections, and vibrant displays to make the gallery visually and mentally stimulating for visitors of all ages.
It is hard to see where reality ends and imitation begins, because the attention to detail in creating the 12,000-plus individual models is so great.
Walk through the gallery and take in the different zones with the creatures that inhabit them. Discover the things you can do in your own backyard to help conserve the wonderful natural heritage of South Australia.
