Tour operators and activity providers play a significant role in implementing sustainable practices, since they usually function as a link between tourists and tourism service providers.

Sustainable tourism is looking out for the economic, social and environmental influences – including the visitors, the economic sectors linked to the tourism industry and the host communities.

The question is Whose Responsibility Is It to Educate Travelers?

Tour operators and activity providers can influence their consumers, suppliers and the routes chosen (Tour Operators’ Initiative, 2003)in order to increase the awareness of the responsibilities each party involved should take on to achieve more sustainability in tourism.

When contributing to sustainable tourism, tour operators and activity providers should work to:

  • Make sure that the local community receives full benefits
  • Minimise the negative impacts on the environment
  • Educate tourists about their responsibility

This report provides Summary spreadsheet estimates of the contribution of tourism to the economies of each of the Australian states and territories. It should be read in conjunction with individual Tourism Satellite Account (TSA) reports for each of the state and territories, which were prepared by the Sustainable Tourism Cooperative Research Centre (STCRC) in March 2007 and released in revised and updated form in November 2007. The information in these reports has been reconciled against the most recent national TSA results, which were published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) on 11 May 2007.
