From kangaroos, birds and water life of Arnhem Land and the Kimberley coast to echidnas and birds from Central Australia, and a wide variety of mammals, fish, reptiles, and amphibians from around the country, this extensive exhibition celebrates the indigenous wildlife of Australia plus landscape views of some of the countries they live in.

Included in the 50+ works on show are acrylic and ochre paintings and barks, works on paper, weavings and wooden carvings and sculptures. While many are colourful and quirky images of birds, echidnas, lizards, fish, and other wildlife, others focus on the creation stories and figures behind the works. These include stingrays, dugongs, crocodiles, and other water life from the coastal regions of Arnhem Land, the Kimberley, and Far North Queensland and the Brush Tail Possum of the Western Desert.
