The SAMI multi-IFU survey is obtaining spatially resolved spectroscopy for more than 3000 galaxies covering a wide range in mass, morphological type and environment. It provides the most comprehensive baseline study of low-redshift galaxies against which studies of high-redshift galaxies can be compared. I will review the main findings of the SAMI survey to date, including key results on the spatial distribution of star-formation as a function of mass and morphology, the mass-metallicity relation, the prevalence and origin of galactic winds, the distribution of kinematic morphologies with environment, and a tight dynamical scaling relation that holds for all morphological types.
