This study sought to gain insight to international students studying on the Gold Coast. In particular, data were obtained on student needs and perceptions on a range of attributes associated with a study destination. Similarly, the study investigated students’ participation in tourism activities while at the destination. Finally, information on what students spend their money on was also sought. A questionnaire was developed based on relevant  literature and preliminary focus groups. The final questionnaire was distributed to commencing international students studying at Griffith University in 2003.

The main objectives of this project are to examine regional visitation to Melbourne and its metropolitan parks, to study the main factors that could function as constraints to such visitation and to produce a number of  recommendations, so as to enhance visitation in the future. Parks in this study include those metropolitan parks operated by Parks Victoria in the suburbs and immediate  hinterland of Melbourne. Also grouped with parks for the purpose of this study are major cultural sites like Werribee Mansion and local metropolitan bays and piers like Port Phillip Bay and Frankston Pier.
