In Australia, the value of and need for park/tourism partnerships and their potential contribution to sustainable tourism have been identified in a number of recent reports (see Natural Tourism Partnerships Action Plan and the Tourism White Paper - Plus).

Australian research undertaken by the STCRC has found that:

  • The last decade has seen increasing recognition of the importance of national parks (See 'Value of Parks') and protected areas to tourism in Australia and elsewhere.
  • At the same time the resources available to provide and manage tourism in relative terms has declined.
  • Consequently, partnerships between the tourism industry and protected area agencies have developed with mutual benefits to park agencies, the private sector and local communities; enhanced tourism opportunities; and increased resources for protected area management.
  • The most important outcomes from partnerships were improved understanding of protected area values, biodiversity conservation, greater respect for culture, and increased social benefits to local communities.
  • Partners were satisfied with the economic gains from the partnership and the improved competitiveness of the protected area as a tourism destination.
  • There is clear evidence of the ability of partnerships to value-add to protected area tourism.
  • Although partners were generally satisfied with other outcomes, they expected more from the partnerships than they were currently getting.
