Sydneysiders can get a closeup look at the world's largest animals this summer at the Australian Museum. Its latest exhibition, Whales | Tohorā, lets you walk through a life-sized heart of the blue whale, explore the 18-metre skeleton of a bull sperm whale and examine other whale bones — the most extensive collection of whale skeletons ever displayed, apparently — be serenaded by whale song and watch live ocean footage — all created using the latest research on whales.

The interactive exhibition was created by the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa and will be on display until April 28, open from 9.30am–5pm daily. The installation specifically honours the whale's cultural and historical significance within the South Pacific Islander communities, with stories and traditions of the Māori People highlighted throughout the exhibition.
