World Heritage Values of the Royal National Park Public Meeetings

Engadine community hall sunday 7 sept 2.30 pm- 4pm
Sutherland pensioners centre sunday 12 oct 2.30pm – 4pm

Come and join us to find out about the process of
Royal National Parks and Reserves being assessed for
inclusion on Australia’s World Heritage Tentative List.

This project is currently underway and is considering
which values Royal National Park and Reserves
(RNP&R) has that meet the United Nations
Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation
(UNESCO) criteria for inclusion of places on the World
Heritage List.

The project is drawing on existing information to
provide a short summary document describing the
values of RNP&R and how they relate to the UNESCO
criteria. This may then lead to RNP&R inclusion on
Australia’s Tentative World Heritage List, which is a
list of places the Australian Government thinks could
meet the World Heritage threshold.

Other places in NSW already on the World Heritage
List include; the Sydney Opera House, Lord Howe
Island Group, the Greater Blue Mountains World
Heritage Area, Willandra Lakes Region and the
Gondwana Rainforests of Australia and some of the
the 11 places that make up the Australian Convict
Sites; the Old Great North Road, Hyde Park Barracks,
Old Government House and Domain and Cockatoo
Island.

The research for the RNP&R project is being
undertaken by a team of heritage experts headed up
by GML Heritage on behalf of the the NSW National
Parks and Wildlife Service.

GML Heritage’s initial research outcomes will be
presented on Sunday 7th September with the final
draft outcomes of this work being presented on
Sunday 12th October.
