Please note: The Australian Museum is temporarily closed for renovations. The reopening is scheduled for spring 2020.
While visitors to Sydney do have the option to venture into the outback in search of Australia’s natural wonders, the Australian Museum, located in the heart of Sydney’s central business district, makes getting up close with the wild a whole lot easier.
Wander through air-conditioned hallways filled with more than 40,000 artifacts, including examples of rare native minerals and exotic tropical birds. An all-access pass grants entry to even more galleries filled with ancient archaeological wonders and indigenous Australian artifacts. Popular cultural exhibits also delve deep into the nation’s aboriginal roots and link contemporary time to the far off past. Wildlife fans should be sure to check out the quirky Surviving Australia exhibit, which showcases the country’s weird and wild through six distinct sections that illustrate animal adaptation and survival.
The museum is located at the corner of College and William streets across from Hyde Park, opposite St. Mary’s Cathedral. Travelers can take the train to St. James Station, Museum Station or Town Hall Station. The Australian Museum is open daily from 9:30 a.m. until 5 p.m., and general admission tickets are $15 for adults and $8 for children between the ages of 5 and 15.
