Visitor Information Centres

The Wet Tropics offers a range of deeply engaging experiences, captivating wonder and interest in the oldest living rainforests in the world. 

If scenic panoramas are what you're after, 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 with more energy, get your gear on and head out into some stunning bush walks. For those who want to relax, take advantage of the range of simple campsites, stay in one of the many 'eco-style' hideaways, or splurge at the classiest resorts.

The best way to start your journey is to have a chat with a local expert at a Wet Tropics Visitor Information Centre. Find out more about the 23 centres spread across the Wet Tropics below. No matter where you go, keep your camera charged!
