A pictorial look at one of the largest-scale conservations initiatives ever undertaken within Australia.
For the past four months, Australian Traveller has been running a competition inviting photographers of all levels to submit images taken within the confines of the Great Eastern Ranges, which runs the length of the eastern seaboard from the Atherton Tablelands in Qld, all the way down to the Victorian Alps.

With $22,000 in prizes up for grabs, images were being considered across the categories of: My Community (people who live and work in the Great Eastern Ranges); My Escape (landscapes, places and activities in the Great Eastern Ranges); and My Habitat (Flora and Fauna of the Great Eastern Ranges).

Along with being published in the magazine, on our website and on the Great Eastern Ranges website, all of the winning and highly commended images will soon be part of a travelling exhibition throughout the Great Eastern Ranges themselves.

Thank you to everyone who entered the Great Eastern Ranges Photography Competition, congratulations to all the winners and runners up, and a big thank you to our judging panellists – Grenville Turner, George Suresh and Inger Van Dyke – and to all of our supporting sponsors.
