Land use Australia Western Australia

Following a short outline of physical geography of the region and pre European land use activities, this paper will take a brief look back into the history of land use in the Leeuwin - Naturaliste Region and explore the six distinct waves of land use experienced in the region since 1830. It will then suggest that the key to the most recent land use phase of tourism being sustainable is to mange the accelerated pace of growth and maintain elements of the many diverse past land uses as they all contribute to the unique tourism experience this region has to offer present and future visitors.
