Field Guide to Victorian Fauna
Developed by scientists at Museum Victoria this app holds descriptions of over 950 species including birds, fishes, frogs, lizards, snakes, mammals, freshwater, terrestrial and marine invertebrates, spiders, and insects including butterflies. From animals found in rockpools, little creatures in your garden, or wildlife in the bush, the animals found in the State of Victoria are unique and diverse. Detailed descriptions of animals, maps of distribution, and endangered species status combine with stunning imagery and sounds to provide a valuable reference that can be used in urban, bush and coastal environments.
GoFishVic is the answer to capturing data that leads to a better fishing future for anglers across Victoria. This app is the digital reinvention of how recreational fishers can record their fishing successes and improve their future results. The data will at the same time, help the Victorian Fisheries Authority gather invaluable data to track the performance of our most important fisheries. This ensures their health and stock for us today and future generations.
Users can improve their fishing success by recording their experiences, reviewing their catch history, and analyze visual graphs of their fishing results by the trip, by species, by location, and more. You decide how to filter the information, so you can see at a glance where the best fisheries are, what gear and bait works best, where record numbers of species are, and what seasonal conditions are best to catch them.
Get out there and enjoy this beautiful time of year! Download these apps to help you explore Victoria.
