All tourism destinations might be expected to experience damage from an extreme natural event (ENE) at some point in time. ENEs are predicted to increase in both frequency and intensity along the east coast of Australia as global climate change continues. Even if the scenarios of climate change do not eventuate as we think, ENEs are a feature of the environment, and much can be gained from reviewing what we have experienced and how we have coped.

Protected area managers need to monitor the ecological impacts of visitor use and assess their performance in managing visitor use. To assist this process STCRC has established a series of projects to develop indicators and protocols for assessing visitor use and its impacts that can be used as part of an integrated monitoring system for protected areas. The aim of this report was to evaluate existing information related to the development of impact indicators and how these might be applied to the management of visitor impacts in protected areas. The objective was to develop an integrated framework that would deliver a range of indicators appropriate at a variety of park management levels.
