Abbie Museum of Anatomy
Our mortuary facilities serve for the preparation of animal skeletons which are then displayed in our museum, the Abbie Museum of Anatomy. The animal skeletons on display are a result of mutually desirable cooperation between the Zoological gardens of the Royal Zoological Society of South Australia and our department. At the moment the Abbie Museum of Anatomy is in possession of a small collection of the Australian mammals. (eg. koala cadavaric material, possum and wombat skulls) One long term plan is to rebuild a good comparative anatomy skeletal collection especially of primates and Australian fauna.

The pathology museum contains numerous specimens, some dating back to the early 1900’s. The specimens are accompanied by catalogues that provide information including a clinical history of the patient as well as a specimen description and diagnosis. The museum is an excellent resource for students studying pathology. In certain circumstances school or community groups wishing to visit may do so if organized through the Head of Discipline.
