In January 2008, the then NSW Department of Environment and Climate Change (DECC), commissioned Roy Morgan Research to conduct a thirteen-wave telephone survey to estimate annual visits to NSW NPWS managed Parks for the 2008 year. In order to determine the best approach to provide a reliable estimate of the number of park visits, Roy Morgan Research undertook a pilot survey in September-October 2007. The approach recommended through the pilot was confirmed and approved by DECC. Roy Morgan Research was recommissioned to repeat the study in 2010 and has since been commissioned to conduct the study in 2012, 2014 and 2016 by the Office of Environment & Heritage (OEH) which continues the project from DECC.
