dc.description.abstractThe alpine area around continental Australia’s highest mountain, Mt Kosciuszko, is an increasingly popular summer tourism destination. Estimated numbers of people visiting the area have risen in the last 25 years from 20,000 to 70,000 per year. Tourists in summer principally go on day walks in the area, with the summit of Mt Kosciuszko the major destination. Winter activities principally consist of cross-country skiing, snowboarding and snow- and ice-climbing. Tourism is causing a range of impacts on the soils, water quality, flora and fauna, through recreation activities, travel and transport and accommodation near or in the area. Summer tourism and its impacts are likely to increase with an increasing promotion of the area as a summer tourism destination. The types of impacts and effectiveness of current management responses are discussed. Further ecological and social research is required if tourism on the roof of Australia is to remain ecologically sustainable.
