Creatures from the abyss

Not far from the edge of the landmass of Australia is deep, deep water – known as the abyss.

Although abyssal waters make up one third of Australia, it is unknown territory. What does it look like? What lives there? Join us on a journey into the deep before you can then download your very own worksheet of abyssal creatures, and create some of your own!

  1. Join Justin on his journey into the deep abyss and learn about some of the incredible creatures to be found!
  2. Download the Abyssal Sea Creatures sheet. Get an adult to help you print it out.
  3. Time to let your imagination run wild! Not only can you colour these creatures, but try drawing and colouring your own deep sea creations around them too!
  4. As always, don't forget to share your wonderful creations with us by using #MelbourneMuseum #MuseumAtHome.
