Markus Michalowitz moved to Australia in 1982. Originally born in Germany, he grew up in India and lived in Africa for some time.
His father hunted in all these countries and when the family moved to Australia, Markus started hunting. He has always been fascinated with the art of Taxidermy, loving to go to the museums to look at the different animals.
After seeing trophies on friend’s walls, he wanted some for himself, and this is how it all started, 30 years ago. Markus now uses his extensive knowledge gained from years of hunting to regularly guide clients onto some of the best trophy Red and Rusa Deer in Australia.
Due to the high quality of Markus's taxidermy and guiding services, his clientele has quickly grown, making Downunder Taxidermy the business it is today. We endeavour to produce the best possible and quality mounts, in the shortest time possible for our clients, which are spread across Australia and world wide.
Due to the high demand for Pet Taxidermy, we added Freeze Drying as a service we provide now. It also allows us to preserve soft velvet Antlers and work on Boars and other smaller mammals more efficiently.
We are continuing to invest in the future. Our new Taxidermy Studio is now completed and, is taking our business into the 21st century with our mission to give you, our friends the best possible taxidermist and taxidermy services available in Australia.
