Spiders are awesome – they can spin webs, climb, swim, dance, parachute and they can even drop a limb when threatened and grow it back. Found on every continent in the world except Antarctica, spiders are one of nature’s great success stories.

“Spiders will be a once in a lifetime experience, with engaging and fun interactives for all ages,” said Museum Manager Julie Baird. “It will amuse, educate, and excite you, whether you’re already a fan or you’re curious to learn more about these remarkable creatures.”

Exhibition highlights:

Explore many facets of spider ecology, from reproduction to their specialised jaws and silk.

Come and see live specimens of some of Australia’s most famous spiders. Each spider is housed in its own specialised habitat.
