N(ii) (iii)

The Committee inscribed the Fraser Island component of the nomination excluding the Cooloola National Park, on the World Heritage List. The Committee encouraged the efforts of the Australian and Queensland authorities to plan and manage Fraser Island in the wider context of a 'Regional Park' and extend statutory protection to all of Fraser Island. The Committee requested the Australian authorities to consider the addition of the aboriginal name of Fraser Island and to report to the June 1993 meeting of the Bureau on progress with this issue.
