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 image 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.
The titles in the World Heritage Sites in Australia cover magnificent natural locations, precious historic buildings and places that contain rare archaeological remains. Australians treasure their heritage sites, and this series reveals where each site is located and what makes it so special. Included in this series are sections on Indigenous culture, sustainability, environmental management and the importance of place, all of which will support the Australian Curriculum for primary and secondary schools.
