The wonders of the animal kingdom are coming to Brisbane Powerhouse, courtesy of a huge exhibition of nature photography. Headed to the venue for the first time ever, the Wildlife Photographer of the Year showcase comes direct from London's Natural History Museum — which has run the prestigious competition since 1965.
Highlighting the astonishing sights that the natural world has to offer, this year's contest attracted nearly 50,000 entries from 92 countries. That not only sows how much we all love creatures great, small, cute, majestic and everything in-between, but how much we love both taking and looking at snaps of them as well. From that huge number, 100 winning pics were chosen for their creativity, originality and technical excellence, and then tour internationally. You can see the eye-popping, awe- (and 'awwwww') inducing results during its Brissie stop from September 1 to November 4.
Prepare to rove your eyes over everything from up-close-and-personal shots of gorgeous creatures to astonishing visions of sweeping landscapes, and prepare to do so for free, too. It'll be open every day of the week during its two-month season — from 9am–5pm on Mondays, and 9am–9pm from Tuesday to Sunday.
