Wild State

Queensland is a wild state, full of unique animals and habitats.

It has more animal species than anywhere else in Australia and it is also one of the most biologically diverse places on Earth.

From our remote outback to our pristine coastline and the oceans beyond, Queensland is defined by its distinctive environments and animals that are as rare and unusual as they are beautiful.

Wild State gallery takes visitors through five breathtaking environments — the arid outback, iconic eucalypt forest, tropical rainforest, sun-drenched coastal zones and teeming marine environments.

The gallery highlights the extreme beauty, yet fragile state of each environment. It explores how we, the human race, need to protect and preserve our precious natural world for future generations.

Wild State is is on Level 4 of the museum and is presented by our exclusive biodiversity partner, BHP Billiton.
