Conservation issues presented to the World Heritage Committee in 1987

At the request of the Australian Government, IUCN conducted a field review of this site in light of potential conflicts with the logging industry.

A report was submitted and since then the Commonwealth Government has formed a special Commission of Inquiry to investigate the possibility of any boundary exten­sions. 

Analysis and Conclusions of the World Heritage Centre and the Advisory Bodies

The results of this should be brought to the attention of the next meeting of the World Heritage Bureau.
