Description

The Great Barrier Reef is a World Heritage Site that is visible from space. Find out about its unique contribution to world heritage and how scientists are working to ensure its continued existence in the face of a number of environmental threats. Then wander through the Gondwana rainforests and imagine the dinosaurs that once roamed there. Fossil sites, tropical wilderness and the majestic Royal Exhibition Building in Melbourne complete this book’s coverage of World Heritage Sites across three states.
