[Extract] This report aims to provide an educational tool for QPWS about cultural and national differences related to protected area management and offer guidelines on how to respond to these differences to ensure protected areas are managed under the principles of ecological sustainability. This aim evolved out of an internship program developed between JCU Business and QPWS in response to management issues raised at Green Island National Park. The program provided Chinese speaking interns to assist with communication of minimal impact and safety behaviours to Mainland Chinese package tourists. The report reviews the available published evidence on Mainland Chinese tourists and incorporates lessons learnt from the Green Island program to date. This report focuses on characteristics and issues likely to be relevant to all Mainland Chinese international tourists and also examines elements specific to First Wave tourists as they are the current dominant group likely to be encountered in national parks in Queensland now and for the foreseeable future.
