The animals found in the south eastern Australian State of Victoria are unique and diverse. Detailed descriptions of animals, maps of distribution, and endangered species status combine with stunning imagery and sounds to provide a valuable reference that can be used in urban, bush and coastal environments. The content has been developed by scientists at Museum Victoria, Australia’s largest public museum organisation.
The app holds descriptions of over 950 species encompassing birds, fishes, frogs, lizards, snakes, mammals, freshwater, terrestrial and marine invertebrates, spiders, and insects including butterflies. From animals found in rockpools, minibeasts in your garden, to wildlife you might see in the bush. We’ve put in a lot of species, but it’s still a fraction of the complete fauna of Victoria. Our scientists will continue to add additional species and refine descriptions over time.

This app is one of a suite of field guides for each state and territory, developed by Australia’s leading natural history museums.
The app has been updated to take advantage of the larger screens on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
We’ve also fixed a number of bugs, including an issue where upgrading the device to iOS 9 caused thumbnails and images to disappear in the app.

Amazing informative resource.
I love this app, so do the children. We can view over 900 species of animals. The great bonus is the audio, we can listen to an excellent variety of animals. A helpful resource in identifying local fauna
Sooooo very sensational
This app is sensational, every member of this household enjoys it. Camping w it is a plus. And even our pets have been tricked into believe there is birds inside the house with the sound of the animals it provides.
Great Field Guide
Living in regional Victoria this guide is great to use when walking around the paddocks and gardens of our property. Thank you for taking the time to produce it and update it.
