Field Guide app to Victorian Fauna
Explore Victoria's unique and diverse wildlife at home or in the great outdoors with Museums Victoria’s free Field Guide app.
Available for both Apple and Android devices, the app holds descriptions of over 950 species, including birds, mammals, fishes, reptiles, frogs and invertebrates from terrestrial, freshwater and marine environments.
The app combines detailed animal descriptions with stunning imagery, as well as animal calls, distribution maps, conservation status, butterfly flight times, frog calling times and depth information for marine species.
We’ve put in a lot of species, but it’s still a fraction of the complete fauna of Victoria. Our scientists will continue to add additional species and refine descriptions over time.
Part of a set
The Field Guide to Victorian Fauna app is now part of a set: there is now a Field Guide app for each state and territory in Australia. Check them out on our Field Guide apps to Australian Fauna page.
