This report presents results from visitor surveys conducted in Mungo National Park (NP). The visitor survey was conducted during two periods: the first phase was from 30 June to 22 July 2001, and the second was from 22 September to 14 October 2001. The survey was administered according to two methods: distribution by the National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) rangers involved in the Discovery Tours program; and distribution through the park visitor centre.

Off-road driving, horseriding, rock climbing and similar activities can be lucrative for tour operators and important for local recreational groups, but contentious for management of national parks and protected areas, both because of safety and liability and because of potentially high environmental impacts. This report examines management strategies for these activities worldwide and in Australia. Suggestions for best management practice and future research agendas are set.
