The Wet Tropics of Queensland

The Wet Tropics of Queensland is a world heritage listed area (image used with permission of Wet Tropics Management Authority) with an astounding variety of wildlife. It covers an area of 894,420 hectares and has Cairns sitting almost in the middle of it. It consists of different types of rainforest, open forests and woodland, freshwater swamps, shores and mangroves.  

The area is very interesting for bird watching as it has more than 300 bird species of which the following are endemic to this area:

Golden Bowerbird, Tooth-billed Bowerbird, Spotted Catbird, Victoria’s Riflebird, Chowchilla, Grey-headed Robin, Bower’s Shrike-thrush, Pied Monarch, Macleay’s Honeyeater, Bridled Honeyeater, Cryptic Honeyeater, Fernwren, Mountain Thornbill, Atherton Scrubwren, and Lesser Sooty Owl.

Ten endemic sub-species are also restricted to the Wet Tropics. Among which: Little Red Boobook (Southern Bookook - race lurida), Eastern Spinebill (race cairnsensis) and Macleay’s Fig Parrot (Double-eyed Fig-parrot – race macleayana).

The Wet Tropics houses 117 mammal species of which 14 are endemic to the area; 161 reptile species of which 30 species are endemic. The diversity of amphibians includes 60 species of which 27 are endemic species. More than 700 of the 2,800 plant species found in the Wet Tropics are also endemic to the area and quite a few of these species are primitive. (
