About the site

Welcome to the new Australian Museum website - launched on 7 June 2009.

How can you take part? All you have to do is sign up so that you can:

  • add comments
  • add tags
  • collect and share favourites
  • upload your own images movies and audio files

The site is written in XHTML 1.0 strict and uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to control all presentation. The site will look best on recent browsers, but is also designed to render cleanly in older browsers and function with screen readers, refreshable Braille devices and other assistive technologies.

Adding your own content to the Australian Museum site

Did you know you can share images, audio and movies files on the Australian Museum site?

By signing up to our site, you have access to commenting, tagging and favourite functions.

Almost all pages in the site allow comments. When you add a comment, there is also a function that allows you to add images, audios and/or movies as well.

Instructions are provided on each page when you are signed in, however we also provide a summary here of allowed file formats and sizes.

Adding images to our site

  • File formats allowed: JPG
  • Size: up to 500 kB
  • DPI: Ideally 72 dpi is best
  • Watermarking: We do not require watermarking and we prefer images to be free of watermarking.
