For Aboriginal Australians, the rainforest landscapes that make up the Gondwana Rainforests WH area are much more than places of spectacular beauty. Tile striking landscape features are overlain with rich cultural values for their Aboriginal owners. In exploring the Aboriginal values of the area what emerges is a picture of complex natural and cultural landscape where the physical form of the country has shaped and influenced human interaction. This Aboriginal landscape is imbued with spiritual power which has influenced the evolution of the landforms, the plants and the animals of the area, many of which feature in Aboriginal creation stories.
