Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area

The Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area is famed for its ongoing geological processes, evolutionary history, and diversity (especially of rare, threatened and endemic species).

It is an important refuge for many animals and home to impressive examples of ancient songbirds. Many plants and animals here are threatened species—relying on the protection of the parks for survival.

Visit one of the parks along the New South Wales and Queensland border to experience rainforests similar to those that once covered the ancient supercontinent of Gondwana. Containing a fascinating diversity of plants and animals, these rainforests are biodiversity hot-spots with species from ancient times as well as those recently evolved.

Explore this World Heritage in Queensland in Lamington, Springbrook, Mount Barney and Main Range national parks.
