Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition for Schools

It's back for another year and it's bigger and better than ever! This year, the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition will call the rainforest environment of the Bicentennial Conservatory home!

We’re excited to offer schools an opportunity to gaze through the lens of some of the world's best wildlife photographers and marvel at the natural beauty of our planet.

The world-renowned exhibition, on loan from the Natural History Museum in London, features exceptional images which captures animal behaviour, spectacular species and the breathtaking diversity of the natural world.

Using photography's unique emotive power to engage and inspire audiences, the images shine a light on stories and species around the world and encourage a future of advocating for the planet.

The exhibition focuses on nature photography across several categories and is housed within the lush indoor temperate rainforest of the Bicentennial Conservatory.

Don't miss this incredible array of powerful images on your next excursion to the garden and enrich your students experience as you explore the green pathways of Adelaide Botanic Garden.

Class groups have 3 unique options they can book in for to experience the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition.
