This report provides an estimate of direct tourist spending and the contribution of that spending to Queensland’s gross state product that can be attributed to tourists’ access to national parks (NPs). The first phase of The Valuing Tourism Spend in Queensland National Parks Study was designed to provide an assessment of tourist spending associated with national parks at the regional level. Following consultation with key stakeholders of the study, a research team from The University of Queensland collected primary visitor survey data in four regions of the State of Queensland with a view to determining an estimate of the visitor spend attributable to the NPs in these regions. These regions were selected as examples of the four different types of protected area region (urban, iconic, remote and outback) to be found in Queensland. The data collected in the survey were then used to infer a value for national park-generated visitor spending for all national park regions in Queensland. The results of this study indicate that a best estimate of visitor spending associated with national parks is approximately $4.43 billion per annum with $749 million per annum in national park-generated spending.
