Three Valleys

The three valleys project focused on the Weld, Florentine and Styx valleys, adjacent to the world heritage area, in the southern forests of Tasmania.

The Tasmanian World Heritage Area, contains very little area of tall, wet eucalypt forest.  Conservation these valleys will significantly extend the area protecting the habitat and biodiversity represented in these forests as a complete ecosystem.

In Februrary 2013, these valleys and other areas were nominated by the Australian Government for inclusion in the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.
