Zoning maps

The maps below are the official zoning maps for the Wet Tropics of Queensland World Heritage Area. There are 32 mapsheets which cover the entire Area, numbered from north to south. You can click on the mapsheet grid to download a mapsheet (usually between 1.5MB and 2.5MB).
There are six 'amendment' maps which indicate amendments to the zoning since 1998, and two larger maps of the zoning for the entire northern and southern sections of the World Heritage Area (2.5MB each). See the zoning information page for more details about the zoning system.
