So much to see...so much to do...
One thing's for certain, you'll never be short of things to see, do or discover in your Wet Tropics World Heritage Area.
From the adventurous to the laid back, the contemplative to the gob smacked - it's all here waiting for you to explore.
Take a hike, take a drive or take a canoe – or simply sit in reflective stillness as you listen to the forest’s ancient voice, your Wet Tropics World Heritage Area has something for everyone.
From the rugged peaks of Bartle Frere, towering high above the rainforest escarpment looking out to the emerald waters of the Great Barrier Reef; the quiet mystery and breathtaking beauty of the Daintree; to the thundering roar of the Tully Gorge - the World Heritage Area is laced with walking trails, scenic drives and waterways all waiting patiently to carry you along to your next discovery.
Meet a local...
Say hello to a local as the canopy above, rings out with the echos and cries of some of the world’s rarest birds, whilst at your feet shy, wide-eyed melomys fossick amongst the undergrowth - just one of the 13 Australian mammal species found nowhere else in the world.
From the macro to the micro, waterfall to wet lands, the crocodile to the cicada, you’ll be entranced and bewitched by a landscape rich and complex and as old as time itself.
Spend a night out under the stars...
While a wide range of accommodation can be found across the World Heritage Area - ranging from backpacker informality to pampered luxury, it's not until you spend a night out under the stars that you really begin to appreciate the magic and awesome wonder of the region. This really is where the World Heritage Area comes into its own, boasting some of the most stunning locations you'll find anywhere in the world.
