Study Method This report presents the findings from a visitor survey carried out over a three-day period from Saturday 29 September to Monday 1 October 2001. Visitors aged 15 years and over were contacted at one of five sites within Barrington Tops National Park and invited to participate in the study. Those who agreed were given a questionnaire to complete themselves and mail back in a reply-paid envelope. A total of 556 questionnaires were given out with 256 returned, resulting in a more than acceptable final response rate of 46%. Respondent Profile Study respondents were mostly older adults (44.0% were 35-54 years old), highly educated (81.8% had some level of post-secondary education), employed on a full-time or part-time/casual basis (66.3%), and hold middleto high-level white collar occupations (67.8%). A slight majority (56.8%) of respondents were female. More than 23% of respondents who are Australian residents were born in an overseas country, while most (94.3%) speak only English at home. Half (50.8%) of the respondents were Sydney residents. For more than half (54.4%), this was their first visit to the park.
