This project aimed to identify sites on the Victorian bank of the Murray River where community values indicate that either further conservation is desired or where development is acceptable. Since the region is under pressure from population and tourism growth and a diversity of land uses, the Victorian government is considering the use of public land and the appropriateness of access to commercial and community activities. In this study, questionnaire surveys were sent to a representative sample of residents, visitors and tour operators asking them to indicate their preferences for future development and show locations of a range of values including biological, scenic, economic, recreation, therapeutic and wilderness and sites for future tourism or residential growth. Spatial analysis of the survey data using GIS revealed the locations of particular importance. On the basis of modelling using these values, these locations were predicted to be national/state parks.
