In December 1982 the UNESCO Committee declared the wilderness a World Heritage Area (WHA). At the time of inscription, the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area (TWWHA) satisfied seven of a possible ten criteria – more than any other World Heritage Site. The TWWHA is still one of only 13 World Heritage properties that satisfy all natural criteria for selection and one of only 24 that meet both natural and cultural criteria.
Incredibly, the WHA covers about 20 per cent of Tasmania. www.discovertasmania.com Click graphic below for Australia Sales on clothing.
