The wonders of the animal kingdom have arrived at the Australian National Maritime Museum, al thanks to a huge exhibition of nature photography. Displaying from Friday, April 8 through until March 2023, the Wildlife Photographer of the Year showcase comes direct from London's Natural History Museum — which has developed and produced the prestigious competition since 1965.

Highlighting the astonishing sights that the natural world has to offer, this year's contest attracted over 50,000 entries from 95 countries. That not only shows 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. And, you can see the eye-popping, awe- (and 'awwwww') inducing results during its Sydney stop right now.

Prepare to rove your eyes over everything from up-close-and-personal shots of gorgeous creatures to astonishing visions of sweeping landscapes. It's open every day of the week during its 11-month season — from 9.30am–5pm daily.
