Your window into an Ancient Land

Australia's Tropical Rainforests cover approximately 900,000 square hectares and are internationally recognised as being one of the most ecologically fascinating natural areas in the world, as one of few remaining truly pristine tropical rainforest places on the planet. 

These forests contain an amazing array and diversity of flora and fauna. Stretching for over 500 kilometres along Tropical North Queensland's coastline, these rainforests are the oldest continually surviving rainforests on earth and once covered the entire Australian continent.
