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 created in 2012 by the Wet Tropics Management Authority, Savannah Guides and other partners to support ongoing learning and enhance visitor experiences. The Program offers great networking, information and skill sharing opportunities, and builds awareness of the Natural and Cultural Values of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area and how to present these as Tour Commentaries and Stories.
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 days long and held generally twice each year in various Wet Tropics locations.
- Complete the Certification Manual building knowledge in the Natural and Cultural Values of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area and Presentation Skills.
- Pass a Guiding Field Assessment, usually a 30 minute walk.
These can be undertaken in any order.
The COVID-19 Virus has resulted in the postponement of Wet Tropics Workshops and Field Schools for now. We will advise on this page and through our newsletter when we are able to schedule our next Field School.
