Other Information: This is the fourth report from the “Values and aspirations for coastal waters of the Kimberley” research project funded by the Western Australian Government and administered by the Western Australian Marine Science Institution (Kimberley Research Node Project 2.1.2). The study area extends from the south western end of Eighty Mile Beach to the Northern Territory Border, a coastline 13,296 km in length at low water mark including the islands. The aim of this 3-year research project is to document and analyse the social values and aspirations of people associated with the existing and proposed marine parks at Eighty Mile Beach, Roebuck Bay, Lalang-garram/Camden Sound, Horizontal Falls and North Kimberley, and other coastal waters of the Kimberley. This report provides results from visitor survey research undertaken to identify and describe visitor values, activities and management preferences regarding the Port Smith (Purnturrpurnturr) coastline and marine environment. Research design and execution followed an agreement-making approach developed through ongoing discussions with the Karajarri Traditional Lands Association (KTLA), the prescribed body corporate responsible for native title and other land management under the authority of Karajarri. This approach involved two complementary stages: (1) introductions, scoping and discussion of research possibilities with KTLA representatives; and (2) providing training in, and subsequently carrying out, questionnaire-based research in the field.
