The lecture will spotlight the Mount Lofty Ranges World Heritage bid that has been proposed by six councils in South Australia. The area covered by the bid encompasses around 150,000 hectares of land stretching from the Barossa Valley through to the Fleurieu Peninsula. A successful bid will ensure the global protection and promotion of this area for its cultural and agricultural assets. This presentation is the second in the series examining UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
