Resumen

Este estudio investiga si ha habido un cambio de percepciones de los residentes de la Costa del Sol australiana sobre los impactos del turismo en el año 2009, comparándolo con el 2008. En el 2009 un mayor número de enuestados opinaron que el estilo y ritmo de vida son los principales atractivos del al Costa del Sol. Los resultados también demuestran un aumento significativo en las pe- repciones de los residentes sobre el impacto positivo del turismo en la identidad cultural de la comu- nidad. El estudio también encontró que entre el 2008 y el 2009 hubo una disminución significativa de las preocupaciones de los residentes con respecto al tráfico, el ruido y la contaminación, los índices de criminalidad, la destrucción del medio ambiente, playas, rutas de senderimso, parques e instalaciones al aire libre. La investigación, sin embargo, no revela diferencias significativas en las percepciones de los residentes sobre la conservación de los recursos naturales, la creación de empleo y la posibili- dad de tener un intercambio más cultural entre turistas y residentes. En general estos resultados son favorables para las partes intere-sadas en el desarrollo de planes de futuro para turismo en la región, ya que los residentes parecen dispuestos a apoyar el desarrollo turístico.
