The Australian Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year competition once again celebrates the natural heritage of the Australia, New Zealand, Antarctica and New Guinea bioregions.

The stunning beauty of our natural world is on display within this exhibition. Professional, emerging and junior photographers alike have shown impeccable patience, artistry and technique to capture superb moments in time.

Beyond affording us the opportunity of witnessing the unique beauty of the flora, fauna and landscapes of our own backyards, this breathtaking exhibition provokes us to explore the changing nature of regional ecology.


Australian Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year 2019 is produced by the South Australian Museum, and presented in partnership with the Australian Museum and Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences.
