THE MOST POPULAR GALLERIES for Australian Geographic readers in 2013 suggest a penchant for nature, history and astronomy.

The top four galleries this year were all related to our environment. The winners of the Australian Geographic ANZANG Nature Photographer of the Year took out the number one spot, closely followed by brilliant photography of Aurora Australis.

Our gallery of the world’s ugliest animals suggests our readers still have a sense of humour about nature, too.

Enjoy!
