Explore and discover Australia's World Heritage Places

An interactive education program featuring Australia's World Heritage Places has been developed for students in years 5 - 10 which focuses on World Heritage values and Australia's 18 World Heritage places. The aim of this program is to inspire students to explore our unique World Heritage listed places and develop an appreciation of heritage values. An understanding of heritage places in Australia and their significance in the world will encourage young people to appreciate them and help preserve them for future generations.
