For the best place to start your journey, our advice is to visit a Wet Tropics Visitor Information Centre and to have a chat with a local expert.
There are 23 Centres spread across the Wet Tropics, you can find out more information about them below.
If scenic panoramas are what you're after, you can travel along 40 scenic routes with over 100 spectacular lookouts and camera hotspots. A trip to Wet Tropics World Heritage Area is most certainly not complete without taking in the vistas of Queensland's highest peaks, Bartle Frere and Bellenden Ker, and Australia's longest single-drop waterfall, the 305 metre Wallaman Falls.
For those who are more on the energetic side of things, get your gear on and head out into some simple stunning bush walks. For those who just want to relax, there are plenty of places to put your feet up ranging from the most basic type of camping in the bush to 'eco-style' hideaways to the classiest (and most expensive) resorts.
No matter where you go, don't forget your camera!
