The Wet Tropics World Heritage Area is a key attraction for visitors to north Queensland. It is second only to Sydney Harbour as the most visited land site in Australia.

The Wet Tropics Management Authority (Wet Tropics) has developed a number of publications which assist the visitor to orient themselves, understand the values of the World Heritage Area, and to access fascinating information about this infamous landscape.

Sharing information about the World Heritage Area and how to access various sites and activities, helps ensure that visitors have a positive experience of the region; in so doing also sharing some of those unique experiences and information with others.

Sharing the World Heritage Area with local visitors helps bring about an understanding of the asset that dominates the skyline in many parts of north Queensland. Building support through understanding and appreciation generates a shared vision to protect the World Heritage Area and for others to also enjoy.

The short but focused Tropical Topics provides indepth knowledge on particular issues and topics. Information in Tropical Topics is factual and particularly useful to students undertaking research or just looking for a good read.

The Wet Tropics World Heritage brochure provides a landing pad for visitors. It gives a snapshot of the World Heritage Area, teasing the visitor to taste the adventures awaiting them in one of Australia’s most unique and fascinating icons.
