The Wet Tropics of Queensland World Heritage Site consists of approximately 8,940 km² of Australian wet tropical forests growing along the north-east Queensland portion of the Great Dividing Range, stretching from Townsville to Cooktown, running in close parallel to the Great Barrier Reef (another world heritage site).

The Wet Tropics of Queensland were also added to the Australian National Heritage List in May 2007. The rainforests have the highest concentration of primitive flowering plant families in the world.

Among the National Parks included within the Wet Tropics are:
Barron Gorge National Park
Black Mountain (Kalkajaka) National Park
Cedar Bay National Park
Daintree National Park
Edmund Kennedy National Park
Girringun National Park
Wooroonooran National Park

and over 700 protected areas including privately-owned land.
