The Mount Lofty Ranges World Heritage Bid spans the world-renowned food, wine and tourism regions of the Clare and Barossa Valleys, Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale and Fleurieu Peninsula, all located within an hour or so's drive of Adelaide, South Australia. The UNESCO bid has a core ambition to deliver real and lasting economic, cultural and environmental benefits to the region regardless of the outcome.
NATIONAL HERITAGE NOMINATION LODGED!
The Mount Lofty Ranges World Heritage Bid consortium is delighted to announce that the nomination for National Heritage listing was submitted to the Australian Government on 17 February 2017. This represents Stage One of the larger project to gain World Heritage listing. The assessment of the nomination document is anticipated to take up to two years, but will pave the way for the Australian Government to eventually lodge a nomination for World Heritage listing with UNESCO.
