Australian Critters


This site is about Australian wildlife, and particularly the density of species to be found all around us. Most people have no idea just how many insects, spiders and other critters are around us all the time.

My new project, commencing in December 2021, is the 'Forest Critters' gallery, where I am documenting (with photos where possible) the critters living in my bush property on 70 acres (60 acres bush) in Lilydale, Tasmania.

Almost every time I look, I find at least one new species, & I try to photograph them all. My first priority when I see a new species is to get a photo before it gets away. The second priority is to get a good photo. This means that some photos in this gallery aren't great, but each time I take a better photo of a particular species I replace the dodgy old photo with a good one. Click the links above to see the photos.

Try this at your own place - you'll be surprised how many critters you find!
