Right, so it turns out that my randomly chosen one was a complete  
fluke - in most cases the World Heritage Areas and the National Parks  
don't have the same boundaries. There is however a proposed tagging  
scheme for UNESCO World Heritage areas/places, which will obviously be  
useful.

So for tagging, how about something like the following, with follow-up  
work to check if the other WHAs are National Park boundaries too.

name=Purnululu National Park (World Heritage Area)
source=environment.gov.au
boundary=national_park
unesco_world_heritage=yes
whc:id=1094
whc:inscription_date=2003
whc:criteria=7;8
environment.gov.au:PLACE_ID=105128


and

name=Heard and McDonald Islands World Heritage Area
source=environment.gov.au
unesco_world_heritage=yes
whc:id=557
whc:inscription_date=1997
whc:criteria=8;9
environment.gov.au:PLACE_ID=105142
