Learn the behaviour patterns of the "Deadly Australians" that inhabit our beautiful forests and seas.
Understand the contributions they make to our ecosystem.
The "Deadly Australians" is a public awareness programme, educating Australian children about the dangers of the venomous wildlife that inhabit our suburban backyards, bush, beaches and sea.
The programme uses both live and preserved exhibits with extensive use of visual aids ... posters, maps etc.
Some of the exhibits displayed are:
- Box Jellyfish
- Blue-Ringed Octopus
- Conus Shells
- Stonefish and Ciguatoxic Fish
- Arachnids - Ticks & Spiders
- European Wasps
- Small Scaled Snake
- Common Tiger Snake
- Pythons, Lizards and Freshwater Turtles
- Death Adders
- Common Black Snake
- Irukandji Jellyfish
- Common Brown Snake
- Sea Snakes
All are displayed with a "hands on" session so as to enable students to appreciate non-venomous reptiles that occur throughout Australia.
Deadly Australians is open from 10am to 4pm daily and all Public Holidays except Christmas Day and Good Friday.
