World Heritage Sites – Australia

    Australia, like the United States and Canada, is short on history (a fairly recent country as countries go) but blessed with tremendous natural beauty and interesting, unusual wildlife. Thus, UNESCO has chosen this type of location to preserve for the world to appreciate. See my list of the best of these World Heritage Sites from "down under."  Also check out the photos that accompany each site.
