The study’s primary objective was to measure the economic impact of tourists’ expenditure in the Australian Alps, on the economies of the Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales and Victoria.  The project involved measuring tourism expenditure in the Alps region and the associated multiplier effects of that expenditure.  The economic impact is shown in terms of Gross State Product (GSP) and employment/jobs that are attributed to tourism to each of the states’ Alps national parks.

This study seeks to provide simple methods to evaluate the contribution of natural area tourism to local/regional economies. It draws on work undertaken in 2003 by Carlsen and Wood and longitudinal research undertaken by Wood in the Gascoyne region of Western Australia since 1997. The former  study assessed the economic contribution of tourism to two Western Australian regions (the Gascoyne Coast and Southern Forests), whilst the latter provides stratified samples of tourism data each April in most years since 1997 and data from the other significant tourism seasons collected over two years between 2002 and 2004.

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.

World Heritage listing signifies globally outstanding natural and/or cultural heritage: a “top brand” in marketing terms. Does this branding as heritage icons confer economic value through increased tourism expenditure at World Heritage Areas, pre- and post listing, with unlisted but comparable destinations nearby.

This is the first assessment of the value of national parks, marine parks and forests for tourism and recreation in Western Australia. A case study approach was adopted and two study regions were nominated because of their significance for tourism and recreation and their endowment of natural attractions within parks, forests and marine areas. This study estimated the direct yearly tourist expenditure in two regions known for their unique natural attractions – the Southern Forest Region and the Gascoyne Coast Region.

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.

The report develops tools for measuring and enhancing the yield from tourism at the business, regional and national level. It clarifies the different concepts of tourism yield. Different stakeholders (operators, governments, community, researchers etc.) mean different things by ‘yield’ and this presents a barrier to communication and policy discussion.

The primary aim of the report is to develop tools for measuring and enhancing the yield from tourism at the business, regional and national levels. This overall objective subsumes several more specific objectives: First, to clarify the different concepts of tourism yield. Second, to develop operational measures of yield at the level of the firm and at destination, regional, state and national levels. The final objective involves discussion and analysis of the policy implications of the study.

This study investigated the issues surrounding iconic wildlife in terms of both visitor perceptions and experiences and also in terms of the economic contribution of visitors to the destination. The methods employed consisted of a literature review and development and distribution of questionnaires to visitors and tour operators  and an interview of managers at Monkey Mia, Western Australia and Hervey Bay, Queensland.
