ECONOMIC EVALUATION OF TOURISM FOR NATURAL AREAS: development of a toolkit approach
Download PDF DOCUMENT 
This study seeks to provide simple methods to evaluate the contribution of natural area tourism to local/regional economies. It draws on work undertaken in 2003 by Carlsen and Wood and longitudinal research undertaken by Wood in the Gascoyne region of Western Australia since 1997. The former study assessed the economic contribution of tourism to two Western Australian regions (the Gascoyne Coast and Southern Forests), whilst the latter provides stratified samples of tourism data each April in most years since 1997 and data from the other significant tourism seasons collected over two years between 2002 and 2004.
