Annual and State of the Wet Tropics reports

Each year the Wet Tropics Management Authority's Annual Report and State of the Wet Tropics Report are tabled in the Australian and Queensland parliaments.

The Annual Report satisfies the requirements of Queensland’s Wet Tropics World Heritage Protection and Management Act 1993 and Financial Accountability Act 2009; and the Commonwealth’s Wet Tropics of Queensland World Heritage Conservation Act 1994. It includes a State of the Wet Tropics Report, as required under section 63(1) of the Queensland Act and section 10 of the Commonwealth Act.
