Fans of Australia can vote now for Uluru and the Great Barrier Reef to be listed in the official New7Wonders of Nature.
13 October 2010
The New7Wonders of Nature campaign, established by the international New7Wonders Foundation, is a global search to recognise the seven most wondrous natural sites in the world as voted by the general public.

Two of Australia’s most famous natural wonders, Uluru and the Great Barrier Reef, faced some tough competition from 440 sites across the globe but has made it to the finals in a group of 28 wonders including Angel Falls in Venezuela, Milford Sound in New Zealand, Bay of Fundy in Canada, the USA’s Grand Canyon, and the Amazon in South America.

Uluru and the Great Barrier Reef both need votes to make it into the official seven, to be announced on 11 November 2011.

Tourism Australia Managing Director, Andrew McEvoy urged people to support the Great Barrier Reef and Uluru in the final stage of the New Seven Wonders of Nature campaign.

“This is Australia’s opportunity to raise awareness globally of the variety and natural beauty of our unique environment,” Mr McEvoy said.

“The campaign creates a platform to help conserve Australia’s natural wonders for years to come as well as encourage tourists from around the world to experience these incredible sites for themselves”.

To visit Uluru or the Great Barrier Reef or any other destination in Australia, all international tourists must have an Australian Travel Visa.

The most popular of these visas is the ETA Visa, as is can be quickly and easily applied for online and allows the holder to enter Australia for up to three months.

Current ranking statistics reveal that the Great Barrier Reef is regularly in the top 14 picks of voters from around the world, whilst Uluru needs more support.
