Celebrate World Heritage in the Greater Blue Mountains

Fifteen years ago, on 29 November 2010, the Greater Blue Mountains Area was given the gift of World Heritage status from the UNESCO community, listing our place as one of outstanding universal value to the world, mainly due to the area’s exceptional biodiversity.

Whether living in the middle of a World Heritage listed area or on its doorstep, the objective of the celebrations is to inspire youth and the broader community with an appreciation of World Heritage values and to encourage ongoing conservation of cultural and natural sites within Australia and around the world.

Join in the 15th anniversary celebations

When: Saturday 28 November 2015, 2-5 pm
