This attraction, which includes several protected areas, is located on the most prominent slope on Australia s east coast. Famous geological landscapes are displayed in front of people around the crater shield. You can also see a large number of endangered rainforests here. These landscapes are of great significance to world scientific research and nature protection.
The reason why this area was inscribed on the World Heritage List is because of its remarkable biodiversity and the existence of a large number of rare creatures. The Central and Eastern Rainforest Reserve has high conservation value, and it is an ideal habitat for about 200 species of rare and even endangered plants and animals. This park or protected area contains five main types of rainforests that can be divided, including some virgin forests in New South Wales that have never been disturbed by humans. At the same time, there are large areas of reconstructed rainforest. All these features make this protected area a World Heritage List.
The Middle East Rainforest Reserve includes more than 50 World Heritage Listed National Parks. The plant and nature reserves extend over 500 kilometers in a series of damaged rainforest zones. From Buna, Queensland, here Right next to the southern border of New South Wales, to the New South Wales hunting area, it is less than 300 kilometers north of Sydney. The Central and Eastern Rainforest Reserve covers a total area of 366,507 hectares, of which 59,223 hectares are in Queensland and 307,284 hectares are in New South Wales.
The predecessor of the Central and Eastern Rainforest Reserve was called the Australian East Coast Temperate and Subtropical Rainforest Park. The 16 protected spots in the Australian East Coast Temperate and Subtropical Rainforest Park included more than 203,000 hectares of national parks and plant and nature reserves. The park was included in the UNESCO World Heritage Program in 1985.
After a comprehensive assessment by the World Conservation Association, the nomination letter submitted by the Australian government was accepted by UNESCO. In November 1986, UNESCO accepted most of the nominations and decided to transfer the temperate and The subtropical rain forest park is on the World Heritage List.
By 1997, the New South Wales government had completed the task of changing most of the World Heritage Sites from government forests to national parks. All of these national parks or protected areas, including temperate and subtropical rainforest areas, were removed. Renamed collectively known as the Rainforest Reserves of Central and Eastern Australia and included in the World Heritage List.
