Abstract: The proposal for “A Co-operative Framework for the Sustainable Use and Management of Tourism and Recreation Opportunities in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park” (the Framework) has been prepared by the Tourism and Recreation Reef Advisory Committee (TRRAC), based on the principles of ecologically sustainable development. The Framework adopts a triple-bottom line approach that provides for environmental sustainability in terms of protecting the reef environment, economic sustainability in terms of operating in a contemporary business-like fashion and social/cultural sustainability in terms of respecting the needs of the wider community including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. In this way, the TRRAC believes that the Framework will not only be responsive to tourism and recreation needs, but also address the concerns of resource managers, environmental interests and other stakeholders.
