Values for a New Generation

The theme-based papers in Values for a New Generation represent the collaborative effort of members and former members of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area Advisory Committee. They present data and perspectives on geodiversity, biodiversity, cultural and historic values, and scenic splendour, together with an explanation of boundary changes needed to provide long-term protection.

Originally prepared to support a well-informed understanding of the potential National Heritage values of this special area by the Australian Heritage Council, in time, the information may also contribute to a re-nomination to the World Heritage List. In the meantime, the insights and information which follows will help to transmit an understanding of the Greater Blue Mountains to a new generation.
