The Mt Lofty Ranges are among Australia’s most beautiful areas and are enjoyed by many residents and visitors. Its lovely landscapes are the key to its popularity.
With the support of the World Heritage Bid for the Ranges, consultancy firm Scenic Solutions is carrying out a survey to measure and map its landscape quality. The results will inform and assist the Government, councils, land owners and other bodies in their planning, management and promotion of the region.
The survey comprises a set of photos of the region and involves rating them on a 1 – 10 scale of landscape attractiveness. The value of the survey depends on having as many people as possible participate.
No qualifications or experience are required and the responses will be anonymous. It is open to anyone 18 years or older.
The survey involves rating 150 scenery photos, and will take approximately 15 minutes to complete.
The Mount Lofty Ranges Working Agricultural Landscape World Heritage Bid spans the world-renowned food, wine and tourism regions of the Barossa Valley, Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale and Fleurieu Peninsula, all located within an hour’s drive of Adelaide, South Australia. The UNESCO bid has a core ambition to deliver real and lasting economic, cultural and environmental benefits to the region regardless of the outcome. View an ABC 7:30 segment.
