Yarra Bend Park means different things to different users. To the city and urban dwellers that surround it, the Park is a bush haven, a picnic area and a source for both formal and informal recreational activities supported by its lawned areas, its many ovals and two golf courses. To the developer, it represents a piece of potentially extremely valuable real estate, however unattainable. To State and Local Governments, it has been used as a place to locate freeways, hospitals, a prison and other institutes, and to the Yarra Bend Park Trust, a place for recreation, conservation, research, education and appreciation of natural beauty. This minor thesis attributes to Yarra Bend Park considerable potential for tourism development and concludes that Yarra Bend Park has the capacity to serve as a unique tourist attraction for Victoria.
