Wet Tropics Tour Guide Program

The Wet Tropics Tour Guide Program was developed by the Wet Tropics Management Authority, Savannah Guides and other partners to provide ongoing professional development for tour guides and other public contact personnel in the tourism industry. The Program has been continually growing since its inception in 2012 and supports the objectives of many stakeholders in the Wet Tropics.  It aims to build tourism industry knowledge of the World Heritage Area and its values and enhance visitor experiences.  The program creates networking, information and skill sharing opportunities for Wet Tropics stakeholders and builds awareness of land manager and Aboriginal Traditional Owner protocols.

The program includes:

  • Wet Tropics Tour Guide Field Schools – two day events held twice each year in various Wet Tropics locations
  • A Training Course consisting of units in Indigenous Culture; Flora, Fauna and Landscape; and Commentary Excellence. These are delivered using workbooks at one day workshops before each Field School
  • An eNewsletter with upcoming events and new resources

 

Next Wet Tropics Field School is expected to be held in March 2017.

Details will be available here and notified by newsletter.
