The Sustainable Tourism CRC, in partnership with Brisbane City Council and Redland Shire Council, was requested to develop a framework for the sustainable management of tourism and recreation in Moreton Bay. Before developing any strategy for sustainable tourism in Moreton Bay it was essential to understand the extent of tourism, as well as recreation activity, in the area and to conduct a preliminary analysis of how that visitation may impact on the surrounding natural and social environment.

This study investigated the importance of aquatic ecosystems to tourism and recreation and assessed the potential and current impacts of this resource use on the sustainability of aquatic ecosystems in Australia. Through literature searches and the development of surveys we aimed to integrate current ‘on-the-ground’ activities with what is known of the impacts of tourism and recreation on aquatic ecosystems worldwide. We propose a suite of research and development priorities and opportunities arising from this that will enhance our understanding of ecosystem responses to tourism and recreation and facilitate the sustainable management of Australia’s in demand aquatic resources.
