A Room for Wild Animals

Get up close to 20 taxidermy specimens from the Queensland Museum collection.

Most of us are familiar with Australian mammals such as koalas and kangaroos, but have little appreciation for the sheer size and form of many overseas land mammals.

In a first for Ipswich, A Room for Wild Animals showcases 20 taxidermy specimens from the Queensland Museum collection including big cats, bears and deer.

The specimens featured represent some of the most impressive mammals on the planet, providing a rare opportunity to experience them up close. The exhibits featured in this display are part of a larger collection some of which were seized as Proceeds of Crime and donated to Queensland Museum on behalf of the Commonwealth of Australia.

Today they speak on behalf of their living relatives across the globe and help us to learn an important conservation lesson.
