Up Close and Wild

On now

Queensland is a colourful mesh of different natural habitats and ecosystems, formed by its ancient geology, climate and landscape. To the east, a white-gold strip of coast separates the deep marine waters of the Pacific from verdant rainforests and iconic bushland. Further inland the red-brown of the arid zone covers almost 40% of the State. These complex, interconnected environments support equally intricate communities of native plants and animals, making Queensland the most biodiverse area in Australia. 

Visit this photographic exhibition to enjoy beautiful images by photographers in the Queensland Museum Network including Gary Cranitch, Jeff Wright and Bruce Cowell. The images featured have been taken in three different habitats, the bush, the rainforest, and the outback. Learn some interesting facts about unique animals that can be found in the great state of Queensland.   

Up Close and Wild is on now until November 2021 and included with general museum entry

Museum entry is free for residents of the Toowoomba Regional Council area with proof of residency.
