Rainforest Aboriginal information

 

The Wet Tropics Management Authority values and promotes the enduring cultural connections that Rainforest Aboriginal people have to the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area.

The Wet Tropics Management Authority works closely with Rainforest Aboriginal people to produce communication materials that inform the public about Rainforest Aboriginal aspirations, stories, news and events from around the Wet Tropics region, as well as materials for the Rainforest Aboriginal community about our activities. 

Rainforest Aboriginal people generously share their knowledge and experiences in these products.


 

Regional Agreement

The Wet Tropics Regional Agreement 2005 provides for the cooperative management of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area by the 18 Rainforest Aboriginal people associated with the Area, and the Australian and Queensland Governments.

No Wabu, No Wuju, No Gunduy (No Rainforest, No Food, No Cassowary)

This DVD was produced by the Girringun Aboriginal Corporation. It depicts the close links between Rainforest Aboriginal people and the cassowary and their fears for its future survival. Copies temporarily unavailable.
