This area, which stretches along the north-east coast of Australia for some 450 km, is made up largely of tropical rainforests. This biotope offers a particularly extensive and varied array of plants, as well as marsupials and singing birds, along with other rare and endangered animals and plant species.
- Aboriginal occupation in this area probably dates back to the earliest human occupation of Australia, approximately 50,000 to 110,000 years ago.
- The Indigenous people in this area were known for their ability to treat poisonous plants to make them safe and edible.
- Significant meeting point of two World Heritage Areas where the Wet Tropics meets the Great Barrier Reef.
