About this app

The animals found in the south eastern Australian State of Victoria are unique and diverse. Detailed descriptions of animals, maps of distribution, and endangered species status combine with stunning imagery and sounds to provide a valuable reference that can be used in urban, bush and coastal environments. The content has been developed by scientists at Museum Victoria, Australia’s largest public museum organisation.

The app holds descriptions of over 950 species encompassing birds, fishes, frogs, lizards, snakes, mammals, freshwater, terrestrial and marine invertebrates, spiders, and insects including butterflies. From animals found in rockpools, minibeasts in your garden, to wildlife 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 Victoria. Our scientists will continue to add additional species and refine descriptions over time.

This app is one of a suite of field guides for each state and territory, developed by Australia’s leading natural history museums.

If you have trouble either downloading the app or with the app crashing, please refer to our app support page (http://museumvictoria.com.au/discoverycentre/museum-victoria-apps/mv-field-guide-to-victoria-app/support/)

Great photos and easy to use .... but the ant genera are treated simplistically as "species". So you have no mention of a threatened species of Myrmecia. Also the mapping seems incorrect for some taxa. It almost seems the Victorian distribution data for many species is missing or limited.

Pretty good on the whole, easy to find different species and identify them. There are sound clips missing for some common species though.

Pretty good especially when compared to other State guides. But I wonder if it is being updated and if so how often? Still has good coverage of particularly the most commonly seen fauna.
