Explore the Northern Territory's unique and diverse wildlife at home or in the great outdoors with the Museum & Art Gallery of the Northern Territory's Field Guide app.
The app combines detailed animal descriptions with stunning imagery and sounds to provide a valuable reference that can be used in urban, bush and coastal environments. It holds descriptions of nearly 600 species, from animals found in tropical rivers and reefs, the outback desert, and your backyard; covering colourful birds, iconic fish and mammals, crocodiles and dangerous snakes, through to tiny termites. We’ve put in a lot of species, but it’s still a fraction of the complete fauna of the Northern Territory. Our scientists will continue to add additional species and refine descriptions over time.
This app is one of a suite of field guides for each state and territory, developed by Australia’s leading natural history museums.
The app has been updated to take advantage of the larger screens on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
We’ve also fixed a number of bugs, including an issue where upgrading the device to iOS 9 caused thumbnails and images to disappear in the app.

Ratings and Reviews
Identified a bug in 5 seconds after not knowing what it was in months, and read up on some others I've seen around the garden. Very interesting and thank you for all the hard work, keep it up.
Great but can be much better
Great must have app especially if you’re a regular in the NT or out bush. BUT it’s not updated nearly often enough if at all, and so much potential to have more information - also could include native plants. Would make it absolutely awesome!!
Love the app
Love the app but definitely needs to be updated... some basic animals from NT not included. Definitely more species to be added
