The Flinders Ranges Headed For World Heritage List

The Flinders Ranges could soon be joining Aussie icons Uluru and the Great Barrier Reef on the World Heritage List, after the government nominated the South Australian site to UNESCO.

Several locations within the Flinders Ranges, including Nilpena Station have been nominated for a tentative listing as an Australian World Heritage site, on behalf of the South Australian government and the area's traditional owners.

The Flinders Ranges will now spend at least 12 months on the tentative list, and will then be considered by two independent advisory bodies in the months to follow.

Achieving World Heritage status would ensure the Flinders Ranges were recognised for their significance internationally.
