Wet Tropics

Mossman, Douglas Area

湿热带雨林世界遗产(Wet Tropics World Heritage)从汤斯维尔(Townsville)一直延伸至昆士兰东北海岸的库克镇(Cooktown),占地约 900,000 公顷。 该地区景色十分优美,河流水流湍急、峡谷幽深、瀑布众多,站在高山之巅,壮阔雨林美景一览无余。

是澳大利亚中部黛恩树谷河谷(Daintree River Valley)周边最大的雨林荒野地区之一。 两处世界自然遗产景观交汇于此,形成世上绝无仅有的奇景,雨林一直延伸至列入世界遗产名录的大堡礁(Great Barrier Reef)边缘。 该地区拥有如下美景:
- 黛恩树国家公园(Daintree National Park)
- 巴伦峡谷国家公园(Barron Gorge National Park)
- 卧如龙国家公园(Wooroonooran National Park)。

游客可抓住大好机会,入住坐落在雨林之中的豪华旅社,乘坐四轮车观光,或是踏上观赏鸟类和鳄鱼的冒险之旅,尽情探索湿热带雨林世界遗产。 该地区还设有多条丛林徒步路线,昆士兰新建的世界级长途徒步小径之一湿热带雨林徒步路线(Wet Tropics Great Walk)也位列其中。 小径全长 110 公里,沿途集中展示了该地区独特的自然和文化奇景。

湿热带雨林世界遗产是澳大利亚 30% 的有袋动物种类的美丽家园,现存最为原始的袋鼠物种麝香​​袋鼠也生活在此。
湿热带雨林世界遗产也是无数动植物特有物种的栖息之地。 此地至少生长着 390 种珍稀或数量极为有限的植物,其中 74 种为濒危物种。

人们认为,原住民在此地的居住历史可追溯至 50,000 年前,是澳大利亚最早的人类定居历史。 该地区环境多样,物种丰富,为曾居住在此的原住民狩猎采集者提供了理想的生存土壤。 约有 16 个民族曾在湿热带雨林世界遗产地区定居,直到今天,该地区对当地名为雨林民族的原住民社区仍有重要意义。
