Queensland Museum Network Field Guide to Queensland Fauna App

The animals found in the Australian State of Queensland are diverse and extraordinary.  Detailed descriptions of animals, maps of distribution and endangered species status combine with images to provide a valuable reference that can be used in urban, bush and coastal environments.  The content has been developed by the scientists at the Queensland Museum in collaboration with scientists from our major partner, Museum Victoria, and all other Australian Museums. 

This app holds descriptions of over 560 species encompassing birds, fishes, frogs, lizards, snakes, mammals, turtles, freshwater, marine and terrestrial invertebrates, spiders and insects including butterflies.  From animals found on Queensland’s coral reefs, in rock-pools, in tropical rainforests, in deserts and in the suburbs, the habitats are hugely varied but only represent a tiny fraction of the true diversity of life in this large State.  Our scientists will continue to add new species and refine this app over time.

The Queensland Museum Network acknowledges funding provided through the Commonwealth Government’s Inspiring Australia Unlocking Australia’s Potential grant program which has allowed us to provide this app free to download and use.
