This national standard establishes the minimum requirements for tourism sites and
attractions. The standard gives guidelines for individuals and enterprises, including
community-based organisations, which in one way or another are involved, or may wish to
become involved, in the operation and/or management of tourism sites and attractions.
This standard does not apply to marine protected areas, for which separate regulations and
standards have been developed. It is not applicable to beaches or to events such as festivals,
sporting activities, meetings and conferences or any other event/activity designed to stimulate
the interest of the visitor to participate or to view.
