Point zero zero one (0.001) is the approximate percentage of the Australian continent occupied by the Australian Alps.
Bordering one Territory and two States, this biogeographical island supplies invaluable fresh water to much of south east Australia and provides outstanding natural, spiritual and cultural values.
Although the Australian Alps are recognised as a national iconic landscape by federal national park agencies and Tourism Australia in recognition of such values (see australia.com/campaigns/nationallandscapes/AustralianAlps.htm), World Heritage Listing still eludes the Australian Alps.
Point zero zero one celebrates the fleeting beauty of these Alps.
