Proposition 6707 directly engages the single most important issue facing nature-based tourism: how to manage tourist growth better so as not to destroy the very resources or qualities that the visitors come to experience. As such, development must be considered holistically, involving the provision or incorporation of facilities and experiences beyond accommodation.

The competition focuses on the Cape Range National Park near Exmouth, about 1200 kilometres north of Perth. The area is appreciated locally, nationally and internationally for its significant natural and cultural heritage qualities. The park is on the western side of the Exmouth peninsula adjoining the Ningaloo Marine Park, one of the longest fringing reefs in the world. In its remoteness and fragility it contains many characteristics that make it a prototypical site for sustainable tourism within AustraliaĆ­s coastal environment. The specific competition site comprises a parcel of land between two creek beds on the lower terrace of the western side of the Cape Range National Park, approximately two kilometres from the coast.

The Cape Range National Park, which is managed by the Department of Environment and Conservation, is a site of significant interest and has been identified as an eco-lodge tourism node within the Ningaloo Coast Regional Strategy. This Strategy is a 30-year strategic plan that sets the framework for sustainable tourism and land use on the Ningaloo Coast. The strategy seeks to improve management of the current informal camping along parts of the Ningaloo coast and to provide new tourism opportunities in a hierarchy of nodes dispersed along the coast and that are small scale and low impact, including eco-lodges. To this end the competition supports and encourages development in line with the strategic vision.

Proposition 6707 is an 'ideas' competition seeking to expose innovative tourism developments for the site. While the site for the competition is a real location within Cape Range National Park, this does not reflect any decisions made with respect to the location of an eco-lodge within the park's boundary. The Conservation Commission of Western Australia and the Department of Environment and Conservation will consider any proposals to develop facilities within the park, including eco-lodge style facilities, within the context of the review of the management plan for Cape Range National Park once approved. It is intended that proposals will provide design concepts that are culturally relevant, high quality benchmarks that can assist government and the private sector with their tourism ambitions for the area. Equally, competition concepts should set a broader example for design-led sustainable coastal development in other remote areas of Australia.
