From kangaroos, birds and water life of Arnhem Land and the Kimberley coast to echidnas and birds from Central Australia, and a wide variety of mammals, fish, reptiles, and amphibians from around the country, this extensive exhibition by First Nations artists celebrates the indigenous wildlife of Australia.

Included in the 50+ works on show are acrylic and ochre paintings and barks, works on paper, weavings and wooden carvings and sculptures. While many are colourful and quirky images of birds, echidnas, lizards, fish, and other wildlife, others focus on the creation stories and figures behind the works.

Aboriginal Art centres represented: Buku-Larrnggay Mulka; Bindi Arts; Ernabella Arts; Injalak Arts; Maningrida Arts; Mornington Island Arts; Ngaruwanajirri; Tangentyere Artists; Tjanpi Desert Weavers; Warlayirti Artists; Waralungku Arts; Warlukurlangu Artists; Waringarri Arts; Warmun Art Centre.

Featured artist: Cherylyn Napangardi Granites from Warlukurlangu Artists of Yuendumu. Cherylyn depicts the wildlife she sees in her travels around Australia as well as that of her homelands around Yuendumu.
