Visitor statistics are used to manage Tasmania's national parks and reserves and improve the experience for visitors.
An understanding of patterns of use allows managers to make informed decisions about providing facilities to enhance visitor enjoyment and safety, and to protect the natural and cultural values for which the parks and reserves were created.
For information on visitor numbers to selected national parks and reserves, see our report on Visitors to Selected Reference Sites:
