Field Guide to South Australian Fauna

Field Guide to South Australian Fauna app

Explore South Australia’s unique and diverse wildlife at home or in the great outdoors with our Field Guide app. This app is now available for free on both Apple and Android devices.

The South Australian Museum has been working with Museum Victoria and other museums around the country to build a Field Guide to South Australian Fauna app. The app combines detailed animal descriptions with stunning imagery and sounds to provide a valuable reference you can use in urban, bush and coastal environments.

The app holds descriptions of hundreds of species, from minibeasts in your garden, to birds, mammals, lizards and snakes 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 South Australia. Our scientists will continue to add additional species, additional pictures and sounds, and refine descriptions over time.
