DescriptionAn impressive resource for anyone interested in this World Heritage Area, which covers 900,000 hectares of rainforest in North Queensland, Australia. The site is packed with information on the rainforest and describes the ongoing research and resource management programmes in place to help conserve the area. A living museum section illustrates the diversity of the flora and fauna with images and descriptions. There is information on what makes it a "World Heritage Area" and a section on aboriginal uses of the rainforest. A number of publications are available to download as PDF files.
