The article discusses the case study conducted by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) regarding the diverse benefits offered by the Lake Mulwala to various community groups in Australia.

The study demonstrates the need of better accessibility to the lake foreshore, the need for greater clarity and consistency of permissible activities within the lake, and the need of a resolution on competing demands for land and access.
