National estate

The glossary of statistical terms, published by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), defines the National Estate as: ‘…components of the cultural and natural environment that are of great national value and need to be preserved for the benefit of the community. Some components like the Great Barrier Reef belong to the global world heritage. Such components possess aesthetic, historical, scientific, social, cultural, ecological or other special values and include parks and reserves, beaches, coastlines, certain forests, rare species, buildings and gardens of special merit, sites of archaeological interest, museums and so forth.’
