Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) models are now extensively used to estimate impacts of changes and policies across sectors, including tourism. CGE modelling has been used to simulate the economic impacts of an increase in international, interstate and intrastate tourism to New South Wales and on the rest of Australia.

Impacts of National Park Visitation on Rural Economies and Government Revenue in Queensland: Girraween, Eungella, Daintree and Carnarvon

Comments Off on Impacts of National Park Visitation on Rural Economies and Government Revenue in Queensland: Girraween, Eungella, Daintree and Carnarvon

National parks and other protected areas traditionally have been created and funded to provide conservation benefits.  However, they also provide rural and regional economic benefits stemming from the jobs created both by management agency expenditure and by the spending of visitors who come to the parks.  Unfortunately, quantitative data on park tourism’s contribution to rural economies is limited.  The research reported here provided estimates of this contribution, while also providing information regarding park visitor characteristics, experiences, and preferences.

This report provides the latest information about the characteristics and behaviours of visitors for the tourism industry, managers, and other research projects based in the Ningaloo Coastal Region. The Ningaloo Destination Modelling (NDM) project is a collaborative project between researchers from seven Australian universities and Sustainable Tourism Cooperative Research Centre that will deliver a scenario planning tool that assesses the social, environmental and economic impact of tourism planning strategies in order to assist tourism planning in a region that relies on its unique natural attractions.

This report examines and reviews visitor impact modelling applications in Australia. A variety of visitor impact models  and processes have been used in Australia and internationally but the extent of their use and perceived effectiveness are  not well understood. This project used a Delphi technique and reference group to collect expert opinion from two  different panels: an expert academic panel; and an industry reference group consisting of individuals from state and  commonwealth agencies.

This report provides a complete summary of the scoping study report which has been undertaken by STCRC, The Impacts of Climate Change on Australian Tourism Destinations: Developing adaptation and response strategies — a scoping study. The goal of the project was to build a framework to inform and prioritise adaptation strategies which can be undertaken by destinations and tourism businesses. To do this, the climate change vulnerability of each destination was assessed, with a focus on the potential impacts on tourism infrastructure, activities and operational costs. Summary chapters highlighting key research, findings and recommendations for each of the case study regions are included in this document.
