Additional human language abstract/description

There are currently five (5) Queensland properties on the World Heritage List (as of Oct 2007). The Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropics of Queensland meet all four World Heritage criteria for natural heritage. The Australian Fossil Mammal Sites (Riversleigh), Gondwana Rainforests of Australia and Fraser Island are listed under the World Heritage criteria for natural heritage.

Resource purpose/summary
A single Australian World Heritage Areas database has been created by combining data which was historically stored as a separate set of data for each property. All data is GDA compliant.
