Climate change is a long-term significant change in ‘average weather’ that a given region experiences. It has the potential to have severe economic and non-economic impacts on Australian tourism destinations. Six major Australian tourism destinations have been reviewed to determine their degree of vulnerability, with four of these including protected areas; tropical North Queensland, Kakadu, the Victorian Alps, the Blue Mountains and the Margaret River region of south west Western Australia.

Potential impacts include increased frequency and intensity of ENEs, and environmental, economic, social and infrastructure impacts. Environmental impacts include ecosystem, and fire impacts, changes to hydrological systems, and alterations to the distribution and abundance of indigenous and invasive species (see Protected Areas: Buffering Nature Against Climate Change).
