Wet Tropics Tour Guide Program
Join Tour Guides, Indigenous Rangers, Visitor Information Centre staff, researchers, and community members in the Wet Tropics Tour Guide Program. Everyone is welcome to undertake certification or just come and enjoy our activities.
The Wet Tropics Tour Guide Program was developed by the Wet Tropics Management Authority, Savannah Guides and other partners to support ongoing learning and enhance visitor experiences. The Program has been continually growing since its inception in 2012 and supports the objectives of many stakeholders in the Wet Tropics. It creates networking, information and skill sharing opportunities and builds awareness of land manager and Aboriginal Traditional Owner protocols.
To receive your certificate and badge acknowledging you as a Wet Tropics Tour Guide you must:
- Participate in one full Wet Tropics Tour Guide Field School These are two day events held generally twice each year in various Wet Tropics locations.
- Complete the Tour Guide Course consisting of units in Presenting the World Heritage Area as a Cultural Landscape; Developing Flora, Fauna and Landscape Commentary; and Commentary Excellence. These are delivered using workbooks at one day workshops.
