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.

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.
