Blue Mountains : World Heritage

Over more than seventy years, from the early visionaries to the negotiators and advocates of recent times, this book describes the campaigns for preservation of the Blue Mountains. It records the determined efforts of volunteers against seemingly impossible odds to secure bit by bit a 240-kilometre long chain of national park reserves across the Blue Mountains. Without these efforts, many environmentally damaging proposals would have prevailed over any possibility of World Heritage listing. This is their story.

The carefully selected colour photographs take the reader on a visual journey through the heart of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. The evocative black and white images selected to accompany the text were the most potent form of publicity used in the many campaigns to protect the area.
