The largest private collection of Tasmanian tiger artefacts in the world has gone on display.
The permanent exhibition is showing in the Wilderness Gallery at Tasmania's Cradle Mountain and helps shed light on both how the Thylacine lived and how it was driven to extinction in the early 20th century.
"The thylacine has become an Australian icon since its extinction in the early 20th century at the hands of Tasmanian hunters."
