About Program

The Cape Tribulation Research Station directed by AUSTROP is situated in the Daintree tropical lowlands, considered to be the 'jewel' of the Australian Wet Tropics World Heritage Area. This is a very special area of rainforest sandwiched between the coastal fringing reef (and the Great Barrier Reef) and the coastal mountain range (which rises to over 1000 meters (3,000 feet)). The area has a wide variety of habitats from coastal reefs to tropical rainforest. The Research Station is a research and conservation organisation that specialises in lowland tropical ecosystems, in particular those of the Daintree lowlands, and has been in operation for over 16 years.

Volunteers are our lifeblood! They assist in research and station activities:
- Radio-tracking bats
- Counting figs
- Stomping grass for forest regeneration
- Constructing Station buildings
- Digging holes
- Running the Bat House (Austrop's Visitor Center)
- Whatever else is necessary!
