“National estate places like Aboriginal rock art sites, limestone caves and other geological formations, national parks, nature reserves and historic buildings have the power to draw large numbers of tourists. Places such as Kakadu National Park, the Great Barrier Reef, Port Arthur, Uluru (Ayers Rock) and Elizabeth Farm, attract hundreds of thousands of visitors a year. They are precious economic as well as heritage assets.
In September 1985, Professor Fay Gale, now Vice-Chancellor of the University of Western Australia, undertook to prepare for the Australian Heritage Commission, a handbook analysing visitor pressure at selected cultural sites in Australia and prescribing ways of assessing and controlling the damage caused by the increasing pressure on such sites.”
