From the Heart

From the Heart was released in August 2009 to celebrate 20 years of the Wet Tropics of Queensland World Heritage Area. The 80 page book contains 33 stories and numerous photos and artworks reflecting the community's love, passion and dedication to conserve the World Heritage Area. It begins with the fight for World Heritage listing and traces the journey through to today’s tree planting activities, environmental education and tourism. It describes why the World Heritage Area is now a uniting force in our community rather than the dividing one it was 20 years ago. The book graphically illustrates the depth and diversity of support and appreciation for the natural and cultural values of the Wet Tropics. The stories and artwork also show the strong links between artists and our natural environment.

From the Heart is available from the Wet Tropics Management Authority in Cairns and is also available below as a comprehensive website.
