The Wet Tropics Management Authority, formed in 1992, fulfils Australia’s international obligation to protect, conserve, present, rehabilitate and pass on the World Heritage Area to future generations.
We are jointly funded by the Australian and Queensland governments. We maintain strong community networks and collaborate with land managers, including Traditional Owners, and conservation, research, tourism and community sectors.
Through these partnerships, we work towards addressing a range of natural and human-induced threats to this irreplaceable natural resource.
Importantly, the Authority encourages partners, communities and visitors to the region to protect this special place for future generations.
