The Ningaloo Coast World Heritage Advisory Committee was established in 2013 by agreement between the Commonwealth and Western Australian governments.  

Committee members are appointed in their own right and not as representatives of particular organisations. They are appointed by the State Government Minister for the Environment following endorsement by State Cabinet. The Commonwealth Minister for the Environment validates the recommended appointee to the position of Chairperson.

Committee members have knowledge and/or background in areas such as tourism, local government, indigenous matters, park management and/or qualifications relevant to the protection and conservation of the World Heritage area. 

The role of the Ningaloo Coast World Heritage Advisory Committee committee is to:

  • provide advice to the Commonwealth and State Environment Ministers on the protection, conservation, presentation and management of the values of the World Heritage area
  • develop and provide input into initiatives and opportunities for the promotion and presentation of the World Heritage area values to the local, national and international communities
  • contribute to enhancing the stewardship and connection of the community to the World Heritage area
  • nominate Ningaloo Coast World Heritage Advisory Committee members to represent the Committee on the Australian World Heritage Advisory Committee and the Australian World Heritage Indigenous Network.

The Committee and members are required to follow relevant State Government policies and codes of conduct that apply to such committees.

Ningaloo Coast World Heritage Advisory Committee members are to be advised.
