25 Year anniversary

Twenty five years ago the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area was inscribed on the World Heritage list.

Celebrating the 25th anniversary provides us with an opportunity to reinvigorate the awareness and appreciation of the World Heritage Area.

We can all participate in celebrating this milestone. Here you will find online information and resources to get involved wherever you are.

Hold a local celebration

We are encouraging community groups, visitor centres, work places and schools in the Wet Tropics region to hold a local community event to celebrate what the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area means to us. You can choose to hold your community celebration on our anniversary date, Monday 9 December, or pick a date that suits your organisation – perhaps coinciding with your monthly volunteer meeting or a local promotion. 

Register your event on our online 25 year events calendar (by emailing us the details of your community event) and we will promote your event. 

When you register your event, we will send you out a Wet Tropics 25 year community celebration promotional package that includes: stickers, brochures, posters and other great give-a-ways promoting the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area.

The Wet Tropics Management Authority has developed an easy to use online promotional package with 25 year anniversary logos, key messages and website links to assist with your promotion of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area.
