The Blue Mountains World Heritage Institute (BMWHI) is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to helping protect the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area and conserve its natural and cultural values.

As a member of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the Blue Mountains World Heritage Institute is part of a global community that is working to protect important natural areas like this, around the world. 

We acknowledge the Dharug, Gundungurra, Wanaruah, Wiradjuri, Darkinjung and Tharawal language groups as the traditional owners of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area.
