“This is indeed the most challenging and the most potentially rewarding heritage project in our history “ Dr Geoff Mosley AM.
The Colong Foundation is mounting a campaign for the world heritage listing of the Alps and Eucalypt Forests of South East Australia. The world heritage proposal dates back to 1977 and the State and Territory Governments have supported the nomination of their respective parts for many years but being a cross border proposal inter-government cooperation is necessary.
The most significant natural heritage value of the proposal is the eucalypt-dominated sclerophyll vegetation comprising coastal and alpine heaths and forests that are displayed from the coast to Australia 's highest land area – the Alps.
