Abstract

Protected areas in Australia and across the world are considered special places that have come to be regarded as natural and cultural assets attracting many local, national and international visitors (Worboys, Lockwood & de Lacy 2005). For management of these assets to be effective and successful, it is necessary to obtain information about who the visitors are and why they visit. This knowledge then allows managers to manage protected areas accordingly (Newsome, Moore & Dowling 2002).
