Bushfires are a recurring management issue for Australian parks and their impact on tourism needs to be understood in order to develop appropriate strategic responses. This project explored the impact of bushfires on tourism in Victoria's Alpine National Parks and adjacent areas, and examined the profiles and views of visitors choosing whether or not to visit these areas following the most recent period of wildfire in 2006/07, in order to determine changes in visitor patterns and behaviour. STCRC has also prepared an industry summary for this technical report: Tourism Recovery  (PDF for free download and free hard copies through info@crctourism.com.au).
