Wet Tropics Website

The Wet Tropics Management Authority is thrilled with our new website and we hope you like it too!

This website is your doorway to a treasure trove of ancient wonder, astonishing information about unique plants and animals, and the myriad of adventures that await you on your next Wet Tropics journey.

Exploring

Our new website features a comprehensive database of ‘Wet Tropics Walks’ where you can search for a particular walk tailored to your needs.

There are interactive maps, ‘Hot Topics in the Wet Tropics’ and great advice for visitors and locals planning to explore the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area.

Design functionality

The website has two sections. One section is dedicated to the intrepid explorers - where to go and what to do in the World Heritage Area and the plants and animals you may encounter.

The other section focuses on the Wet Tropics Management Authority and how we conserve the World Heritage Area through collaborative partnerships, share its outstanding values to promote discovery and enrich the lives of people everywhere by promoting enjoyment and appreciation of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area.

Our new website is alive with information, facts and resources.
