This popular annual exhibition from London's Natural History Museum is berthing in Darling Harbour for winter

Sydney is taking temporary custody of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition (WPY). The 100 spectacular images will be housed at the Australian National Maritime Museum until August 25, showcasing not only the best of the natural world, but the patience, ingenuity and talent of the photographers who spend their time embedded within wildlife so that they can get that one incredible shot.

Judged by a panel of industry-recognised professionals, this year's pictures were taken by some of the world’s best nature photographers and selected for their creativity, artistry and technical complexity. Previous winners have included Marsen van Oosten for his portrait of endangered golden snub-nosed monkeys, Sky Meaker for her image of a lounging leopard, and David Herasimtschuk for his image of a northern water snake and hellbender salamander battling it out beneath the water.

Tickets to the exhibition are $20 for adults, $12 for children over the age of four, and $50 for a family of two adults and three kids.
