    Abstract

    In Australia over the last three decades, planning frameworks such as the recreation opportunity spectrum (ROS) and limits of acceptable change (LAC) have been applied to protected area planning and management. A total of 20 applications was identified by McArthur and Sebastian (1998) in their comprehensive review of framework implementation in this country. These frameworks had been applied to national parks (including islands), groups of parks and reserves, walking tracks and state forest (similar to national forests in other countries). Most applications have been at a regional or state rather than a site specific level. Virtually all regional applications have involved more than one agency.
