CSIRO's Atherton Laboratory facility in Atherton, Queensland

Top
CSIRO Atherton is located in the heart the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area, 80 km south-west of Cairns in far north Queensland.

Established in 1971, the site is a well-known hub for tropical environmental research and attracts rainforest scientists from around the world. It is close to internationally-significant scientific sites in the region while still having easy access to the facilities of Cairns (such as the domestic and international airports). The site is sometimes also referred to as the Tropical Forest Research Centre.

The site includes a public reference herbarium, an arboretum and student accommodation.
