Outdoor recreation demands and trends
In 2007, a total of 1334 people from South East Queensland (SEQ), participated in a telephone survey which recorded details of their participation in a range of outdoor recreation activities, their preferred recreation settings, and the characteristics of these settings.
The information gained forms the 2007 South East Queensland Outdoor Recreation Demand Study (The Demand Study). The Demand Study follows two similar Demand Studies completed in 1997 and 2001.
In 2007, Griffith University undertook an analysis of the findings of the three Demand Studies resulting in the Outdoor Recreation Trends in SEQ (1997–2007) (Trends Analysis). The 2007 Demand Study and the Trends Analysis were joint initiatives of several State government agencies who contributed funds for the project including the Department of Local Government, Sport and Recreation, Department of Infrastructure and Planning, SEQ Water, the Environmental Protection Agency and Queensland Health.
