    This paper develops a framework for employing the concept of tourism yield in a multidimensional manner, in particular applied to various quality of life aspects promoted by sustainable development. Most analysts employ a narrow economic definition of yield while paying some attention to the triple bottom line. Here, a framework is proposed that not only seeks to conceptualize tourism yield across a broad range of spheres, but also incorporates sustainable parameters using a systems approach. Rottnest Island - a popular Australian destination - is employed as a case study to demonstrate how the model can be used for assessment and decisionmaking in planning.
