Abstract

Australia was one of the first countries to participate in the World Heritage Convention (Convention) concerning the protection of the world cultural and natural heritage. Amongst the conservation community there is a certain pride about our relatively large number of natural sites and our imagined leadership in mixed sites. There is also pride in the fact that our national government has employed constitutional law to protect some of our World Heritage sites from damaging activities proposed by particular Australian States. But are we really as excellent a global citizen as we may believe? In this brief presentation I review areas where we may have fallen short and suggest where effort and energy may direct our future World Heritage activities.
