We're here to help with Australian animal identification, natural history and cultural material enquiries!

Have a question that you can't research yourself? Found an animal at home that you can't identify? Not sure what kind of bird it is that you have photographed?

We can help.

The Australian Museum's areas of study include Australasian animal life and geology as well as Indigenous cultural object collections from Australia and the Pacific. If your query falls outside of the Australian Museum's field of expertise, we will put you in contact with the most relevant institution or authority.

You can contact us using the online enquiry below, and staff at the Australian Museum will do their best to answer questions or point you to the most appropriate sources of information.
