Queensland tropical rain forests

WWF Abstract

This is not the typically dry red-rock landscape you may see in photographs of Australia. Here is a rich tropical jungle with scenic mountains, lush coastlines, deep gorges, and rushing waterfalls. Under a dense rain forest canopy, the animal life is diverse and includes a variety of marsupials, as well as bats, bowerbirds, and cassowaries.
