The rugged beauty of Australia has always attracted our attention. And no, we don't mean those studs from Men at Work. OK, we do, but koalas and kangaroos are pretty cool, too. Find out if Australia really is the south-of-the-equator version of Texas when the Dallas Museum of Natural History in Fair Park presents Australia: Photographs by Christie and Ronald Gard. The exhibit features works shot when the father/daughter team traveled through Australia in the spring of 2004, each photographing the flora and fauna in his or her own style. The exhibit opens June 4 and continues through August 21 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. Admission is $4 to $6.50. There will be an opening reception at 6:30 p.m. June 9 that features Dr. Leo George Joseph from the Academy of Natural Science in Philadelphia, who will discuss the diverse and unique species found in Australia.
