Comments Off on Host Community Perceptions of the Impacts of the Australian Formula One Grand Prix, Melbourne: A Comparison of Resident Reactions in 1999 with 2002

This report presents the findings from a comparative study of the host community perceptions of the impacts of the Australian Formula One Grand Prix in 1999 and in 2002. The study, which has used the same survey  instrument for both years, examines the perceived impact of this event on the quality of personal life and also of the community. It uses the concept of resident perceptions to measure the impact of a range of variables from the event such as noise, traffic and waste.

This study defines and explores the nature of impact creep within the context of two contrasting case studies. The methods applied in undertaking this study consisted of a literature review and development and distribution of questionnaires to visitors at Monkey Mia and an interview of managers at Monkey Mia and Tree Top Walk. The project considered impact creep relevant to both public and private facility developments.

Accommodation, transport and recreation facilities are key components of a major tourism destination, the Gold Coast. Plans for improving the overall attraction of a destination need to be based on detailed information highlighting the current state of such infrastructure.

Those who agreed were given a questionnaire to complete themselves and mail back in a reply-paid envelope. A total of 556 questionnaires  were given out with 256 returned, resulting in a more than acceptable final response rate of 46%.

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.

The need for data on the recreational use of the alpine area of Kosciuszko National Park is important for the sustainable visitor use of the highest area in Australia. Previous visitor monitoring surveys and estimations of  visitor numbers have shown significant increases in visitation between the late 1970s and the early 1990s. Over the 1999/2000 summer, a 40 day monitoring program was undertaken for the Kosciuszko alpine area by the New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife Service in conjunction with the Sustainable Tourism Cooperative Research Centre.
