Wilderness areas (WILDAREA)

A spatial data class containing the official boundaries of the Wilderness Areas. A Wilderness Area is an area regulated under the Wilderness Areas Act which states that these areas are set aside "…for the preservation of the area as nearly as may be in its natural state in which research and educational activities may be carried on, for the protection of the flora and fauna, for the improvement of the area, having regard to its historical, aesthetic, scientific or recreational value…"
They may be embedded in other protected areas. They range in size and have values from historical to natural heritage but they have no formal class system or management planning
