Die zum Weltnaturerbe gehörenden Wet Tropics

Wet Tropics

Rauschende Flüsse, tiefe Schluchten, herrliche Wasserfälle und Berggipfel mit Blick auf den Regenwald verleihen den Wet Tropics einen ganz eigenen Zauber. Dieses Welterbe ist ein Paradies seltener Flora und Fauna, die Sie sonst nirgendwo auf der Welt zu Gesicht bekommen.

 

  • Nächtigen Sie luxuriös mitten im Regenwald. Morgens erwachen Sie mit den geheimnisvollen Geräuschen und vielfältigen Gerüchen der Natur und einer wunderschönen Aussicht. 
  • Abenteurer halten auf Safari nach den einheimischen Salzwasserkrokodilen in ihrem natürlichen Lebensraum Ausschau.
  • Machen Sie einen langen Bushwalk, zum Beispiel die hervorragende Mehrtagestour Wet Tropics Great Walk in Queensland.
  • Erfahren Sie mehr über die Aborigine-Geschichte der Jäger und Sammler, die 50.000 Jahre bis zur ältesten Besiedlung Australiens zurückgeht.
  • Erkunden Sie die Daintree River Valley und sehen Sie, wie der Regenwald direkt in das Welterbe Great Barrier Reef übergeht. Nur hier können Sie an ein- und demselben Ort zwei Weltnaturerbe gleichzeitig erleben.
