dc.description.abstractThere are two main purposes behind this study. The first is to explain Cost Benefit Analysis (C.B.A.) and to illustrate how it can be used in evaluating Historic Resources. The latter is done using the Tautuku 'Trails logging tractor', considered to be of National Significance, as a case study. Six different options are evaluated, identifying and (where possible) quantifying all costs and benefits. Constraints on the relics and management objectives were considered alongside these options to select the 'best' option. The study of user information showed domestic tourism from Southland and Otago to be of greatest importance. This reinforces the real need to involve local people in all aspects of planning for Historic Resources, as one of the largest sectors of domestic tourism is 'visiting friends and relatives'. Therefore, if local people are not invited to get involved, their possible alienation could have negative effects on visitation. The second purpose of the study is to provoke questioning and thought on the interpretation of Historic Resources. The success of interpretation is dependent on managements' ability to assess the 'needs and wants' of the public and the local people and to provide for these. It is all important that management’s objectives for interpretation are clearly identified. To ensure that 'needs and wants' are being met, continuous evaluation and questioning of methods used is needed.en
