A field guide to the wildlife that can be found in and around Sydney, Australia.

The guide includes most birds, many fish, many mammals, a number of reptiles, and a number of invertebrates. It also includes a small but growing number of plants.

Note that the species included in this guide are determined as follows: all species with Sydney-area records in the Atlas of Living Australia have been included if the Gaia Guide has a representative image of that species.

Some of the species do not have complete descriptions. In particular many plants and invertebrates are missing identification images. If you are able to contribute to the completeness of this app, please consider adding information to species descriptions via the Gaia Guide website. You can improve the quality of the data in this field guide by contributing photos, sound recordings, and descriptions to the Gaia Guide (
