The Wet Tropics is known as the world’s oldest tropical rainforest, a time capsule, surviving for millions of years from the time dinosaurs roamed the planet. The Wet Tropics starts from around Townsville (South of Cairns) up to Cooktown, it is a tropic haven for threatened species, a living museum of Gondwanan survivors, with breathtaking beauty and a theatre of life within.
The Wet Tropics is 6-10x the age of the Amazon Rainforest and whilst the Amazon boasts of an array of bright colours, huge birds and creatures, the World Heritage Wet Tropics around Cairns has a more subtle beauty about it.
There are a few options to visit and see the Tablelands, you can also self drive it if you’re confident in driving & don’t mind getting lost. There is a fair amount to do up on the Tablelands, the most popular is chasing waterfalls for a refreshing drip, seeing the half century fig trees and swimming in the volcanic crater lakes!
Don’t forget if you are still feeling a little overwhelmed, send us an email, let us get to know each other and we can recommend a few things for your dream holiday!
We acknowledge Rainforest Aboriginal people as the traditional custodians of the Wet Tropics and recognise their connection to this cultural landscape. We pay our respect to Elders past, present and future
