Visit Queensland’s Wet Tropics tonight on AUSTRALIA REMASTERED: Wild Treasures

Advertisement

Queensland’s Wet Tropics comprise just one fifth of a percent of the continent, yet they account for some of the highest levels of biodiversity not just in the country, but on earth.

The Daintree Rainforest is a marvel of living history, older than the Amazon, offering us a window into an Australia that has otherwise now vanished into the past.

Summer in the Wet Tropics sees an explosion of plant life due to warm, wet weather. There is a sudden riot of animal behaviour after the quiet dry.

We observe the ways these often unique creatures have specialised and adapted to their environment and its challenges, and the behaviours they employ to make the most of their often dangerous, but resource abundant surroundings.

Production credits: A WildBear Entertainment Production in association with the ABC.

Australia Remastered: Wild Treasures – Ancient Forests airs Monday 11 January at 8.30pm on ABC and iview
