Flinders Ranges of South Australia declared one of 6 "must see" natural Australian landscapes

"The Advertiser" reported on 29 May 2008 that the Flinders Ranges' spectacular slopes will be promoted across the world alongside the Red Centre, Kakadu and the Great Ocean Road as one of six must-see natural Australian landscapes.

The Flinders is the only South Australian landscapes the initial stage of Tourism Australia's international campaign, National Landscapes. The program aims to promote unique Australian experiences, other than the Great Barrier Reef and Uluru, to overseas visitors.

The announcement was made at a tourism Australia function at Port Augusta yesterday morning, where Australian actor Bryan Brown was special guest.

National Landscapes reference committee covener Bruce Leaver said the nation's international tourism industry had based itself on "the rock and the reef" for decades and it  now wanted to promote other amazing natural treasures.

"It's not so much where the bloody hell are you, but where the bloody hell are these places," he said.

"The landscapes must produce a world class experience - we are not interested in the best of Australia, it has to be the best in the world."

The Australian Alps and Mount Warning are also National Landscapes.
