We LOVE the enthusiasm of 13-year-olds Riley Vaughan and Isaac Chafei, who managed to capture this incredible moment - a Jacky Lizard laying her eggs in the Royal National Park! They said the lizard laid eight eggs in total, then covered them up with dirt and patted it down afterwards.

What an incredible story! Fourteen year old Jade follows in the icy footsteps of trailblazers like Linda Beilharz - the first Australian woman to ski both the North and South poles. We wonder if Jade follows Linda’s motto: “Don’t panic till you really need to." australianmuseum.net.au/linda-beilharz-oam

"I have two fears: heights and spiders. I was either going to book the Bridge Climb or the Spiders exhibition, and I chose the exhibition. And I still feel like they are crawling up my back, but I do feel somewhat cured."

It's perhaps thousands of years old and inspired our old logo, but the echidna engraving represents a part of the rich heritage of the people of the Guringai language group, who lived in the area now known the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park for more than 25,000 years.

Zugubal, a linocut print created by Alick Tipoti in 2006, is an extraordinarily rich picture, full of symbols of Torres Strait Islander tradition. More than 2m long, the print shows human-like figures in a canoe with the night sky above them.

The figures are Zugubal – not humans, but spiritual beings who occupied the islands scattered over the sea in western Zenadh Kes (Torres Strait). The...

"Since targeted funnel-web antivenom programs began in the 1980s, there have been no recorded deaths from the Sydney spider. That’s despite its powerful fangs – larger than a brown snake’s and able to pierce through a human toenail – and its ability to survive underwater for up to 30 hours (never, ever scoop one out of the pool with your bare hands).
