Communication products

The enormous amount of information available on different aspects of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area such as its plants and animals, evolutionary history, natural resources and human occupation has enabled the Wet Tropics Management Authority to successfully promote the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area across the globe and to a wide range of audiences. 

Going digital

As the world changes and we become more connected, so to do the methods for capturing and communicating the values and uniqueness of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area.

Digital media and the internet are providing new opportunities to showcase the World Heritage Area and to help visitors share their experiences with the rest of the world in real time. Our website is a key communication engagement tool that will evolve over time along with global trends in communication.

Through our website and Facebook page we will continue to highlight the values of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area and encouraging global audiences to visit the World Heritage Area or at least learn about our amazing landscape.  

Some communication products previously produced, and which are out of print, are available electronically.

Posters

The Wet Tropics World Heritage Area's beautiful plants and animals are showcased in a series of posters produced for the public. Snapshots of this special landscape and its rare creatures have been turned into three sets of posters - animals, landscapes and what you find in the day or night. The images on these posters were generously provided by regional wildlife and landscape photographers.

Wet Tropics vegetation posters

We have produced a set of ten vegetation posters which describe the variety of vegetation types within the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area. These include different types of rainforest, mangroves and open forest, as well as rainforest fruits, and mosses and epiphytes.

Wet Tropics Wildlife posters

A set of ten wildlife posters which describe the variety of wildlife within the  World Heritage Area. These include ground mammals, tree mammals, birds, insects, reptiles, frogs and snakes.

Night and Day rainforest posters

These two posters, painted by Ruth Berry, dramatically show the different animals and feel of the rainforest during the day and night.

 

You can obtain our posters by visiting the Wet Tropics Management Authority office on the ground floor at the Cairns Port Authority on the corner of Hartley and Grafton St between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday, or they may be available for a small donation at a local Wet Tropics Visitor Information Centre near you.
