Summary
"This study depicts the changing landscape of Western Australia's Yanchep National Park as it has evolved in response to natural processes and human activities. The study also serves to evaluate the level of input Indigenous people have in the management of Australian natural and cultural heritage. The Park was examined by utilising a methodology that combined a cultural geography approach with Structuration Theory. Yanchep National Park is highly suited to this type of investigation because of its close proximity to a major urban centre (Perth) and because of the importance of the area to Indigenous people, resulting in a highly visible cultural heritage within the Park. The aim of this research was to distinguish, describe and classify the complexity of environmental features at the Park. It also served to depict specific systems, patterns and processes in which human manipulations of the Park are involved, together with their implications for the welfare of the surrounding community. Furthermore, the results from this study are used to identify management strategies that could benefit the future of the Park. The potential benefits from the preservation of cultural landscapes are enormous. Such landscapes provide scenic, economic, ecological, social, spiritual, recreational and educational opportunities that help us understand ourselves as individuals, communities and as a nation. Their ongoing preservation can yield an improved quality of life for all and, above all, a sense of identity or place for future generations" [taken from abstract]
