Abstract

The objective of this study was to develop an understanding of visitors’ and locals’ experiences of the Westland landscape and infrastructure. The interest in landscape experience reflects the central role that both passive and active involvement in landscape plays in the Westland tourism industry. The interest in infrastructure reflects the critical role that provision of basic services to support tourists, and the management of the tourists’ impact on the environment, will have in the development of sustainable tourism.
