World Heritage Rainforest Tour


The Wet Tropics of Queensland encompasses a 450-kilometre span of tropical rainforest ecosystem that preserves many of the relict species of the paleo-continent Gondwana. Most of Australia’s unique marsupial species originated in rainforests, and this region still harbors the majority of their contemporary descendants as well as examples of almost the entire evolution of plants species. The Wet Tropics is the world’s oldest surviving rainforest and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Take a drive/walk through this living time capsule of Australian flora and fauna. Head out through pineapple and sugarcane plantions with an expert local guide for an entertaining and informative tour. Take in the passing scenery of mountain streams and waterfalls and pause for breathtaking views from McLelland Lookout. Lunch will be served at the Hidden Valley Cabins, Australia's first carbon-neutral, 100% solar-powered resort.
