Understanding visitors and their motivation is one of the keys to a destinations long term sustainability as an attractive tourist destination In this report, you are expected to choose a destination you have not been to before and using tourist/visitor motivation theory identify at least two recommendations for the destination to assist them in to be competitive in the long term. This will require you to research and detail the following: • An overview of the destination, including geographical information, unique selling points (USP’s), visitor experiential components and identification of the key stakeholders responsible for promoting and managing the sustainability of the destination.

Introduction
    In the modern world, people are busy with their daily schedules and have limited time to relax and enjoy with their friends and families. Therefore, they seldom plan to spend some quality time with their families and friends at different tourist destinations. Thus, it is mandatory for some tourist destinations to understand the changing behaviour of the tourists or the visitors and come up with plans and ideas that are innovative and creative so that tourists can be motivated to visit these destinations. Understanding the behaviour of the visitors and their motivations can be thought of as one of the foundational pillars of successfully and sustainably developing one of the attractive tourist destinations. This report will focus at developing Great Barrier Reef Marine Park as tourist destination by making use of tourist/visitor motivation theory.
Overview of the Destination
    The Great Barrier Reef is a world heritage and is one of the largest living structures on Earth. This could be observed from the outer space as well. Since, the ecosystem of the area is quite fragile, The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park was established in the year 1975 to protect this ecosystem. This marine park includes more than 3000 coral reefs and nearly 600 continental islands (Authority, 2019). The park also includes 300 coral cays and an inshore mangrove island. This park has also been considered as one of the seven wonders of the natural world. Along the state of Queensland on Australia’s Eastern Coast, the park stretches for 2300 kilometres.
The unique selling point of the area is the spectacular diving and snorkelling experience. Moreover, the tourists can enjoy a peaceful time here by observing an outstanding array of marine life, which includes hard and soft corals, a profound number of tropical fishes, sharks, dolphins, turtles and many more. This place has everything that can help to enjoy a luxurious holiday while staying close to the nature. Glass bottom boats and under water, viewing stations are the USPs of this destination. For the purpose of tours, Cairns, Port Douglas and Airlie Beach are the main launching points.
The major visitor experiential components of this destination include travel services, accommodation services, tourist boards and attraction and tourism services. As far as stakeholders of this destination are to be considered, recreational users, marine tourism industry, The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authorities and the government agencies are responsible for promoting and managing this...
