Abstract

This project follows on from survey studies conducted by consultant Colmar Brunton Social Research on the Bibbulmun Track during 2003 and 2008. This project was required to provide up-to-date information about frequency/patterns of use, satisfaction levels, user expenditure and visitor profile for the Bibbulmun Track. This survey provided essential data to inform the Bibbulmun Track Use Survey to calculate visitation estimates and improved understanding of the Track users to assist both the Department of Parks and Wildlife and the Bibbulmun Track Foundation in seeking funding for the Track. It provided data to be used in the future planning and improved management of the Track. It also provides a coordinated monitoring program for the Bibbulmun Track to obtain accurate and useful visitor information that is comparable to other monitored long trails and to set a baseline for future monitoring programs.
