The Wet Tropics Region
If you wanted one word to describe the Wet Tropics Region – it would be DIVERSITY. The Wet Tropics NRM Region covers about 2.2 million hectares, extending from the Daintree forests of the north to the sugarcane land delta of the Herbert River catchment in the south, and then west to the dry rangelands of Mount Garnet.
