NATURAL ENVIRONMENT PLACES

The Register of the National Estate which is administered by the Australian Heritage Council provides a list of Australia's natural environment places with heritage significance. The Register listed 2,399 natural environment places at the end of June 2003. Many of these were national parks and reserves, but other common places included wetlands, endangered species habitats and geological monuments.
