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.

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.
