Visitors to this fascinating exhibition will have a chance to (safely!) come face-to-face with 12 live spider species including all the big names like Redback, Sydney Funnel Web, Trapdoor, Huntsman and Tarantula.

While here, challenge a colourful peacock spider to a dance-off and ‘hold’ a virtual wolf spider in your hand. There’s also the opportunity to peek into the insides of a spider using 3D scanning technology, and step into the web of a net-casting spider for the perfect photo op.
