This report is a first of its kind in presenting vessel counts based on more than 55 aerial surveys covering 20 different anchor sites and nine classes of vessels over the course of an entire year. Results from this study, based on an overall count of more than 18,000 vessels, provide governmental regulators, tour operators and members of the local community with the first quantitative figures about the type of vessels and the annual use of popular anchor sites and of Eastern Moreton Bay (EMB) as a whole.

Comments Off on Indigenous Tourism Businesses in Queensland: Criteria for Success: Towards the Development of a National Diagnostic Tool for Indigenous Tourism Businesses

Little is known about the factors that contribute to the success and long-term viability of enterprises in Australia’s Indigenous tourism sector.  Given this, it was considered imperative to identify those underpinning factors that are associated with the success of Indigenous tourism enterprises. Utilising seven ‘successful’ case study businesses from Queensland, the research sought to explore the development, operation and management of these enterprises with the objective of identifying the inhibitors and facilitators to business success from the perspectives of both community operated organisations and individual entrepreneurs.

This report provides estimates of the contribution of tourism to the economy of Queensland. It replaces an earlier report released in March 2007. The estimates from the earlier report have been revised to reflect revisions to benchmark national data, which were incorporated in the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) National Tourism Satellite Account (TSA) released on 11 May 2007.

This report outlines the findings of case studies conducted in Queensland, South Australia and Victoria as part of a broader project investigating the ways in which regional tourism is enhanced and developed through integrated food and wine strategies. This analysis is based on exploratory visits and in-depth interviews with key stakeholders and leaders in two wine tourism regions in each state. A case study approach was used, entailing the collection of information on regional products, the levels of collaboration within the regions, the leadership of ‘regional champions’ and the importance of brand recognition and development.

The market performance information available to tourism operators and managers of Regional Tourism Organisations for use in evaluating their relative performance is not considered adequate. Tourism operators individually have their own performance data available (ie hotels may have data on room night occupied per month) but this information is generally considered commercially sensitive. Thus, sharing of such data to enable the performance of an individual operator against others or to allow aggregate performance of the destination to be measured has been problematic. This technical report provides a summary of the pilot implementation of Industry Performance Analyser for Tourism (IPAT) by selected Regional Tourism Organisations (RTOs) in Queensland.

Comments Off on Public Liability in the Australian Tourism Industry: Risk Exposure Profile and Legal Responsibilities

The premise of the project is that safety will be improved where risk exposure profiles are available for tourism industry sectors in conjunction with readily available knowledge of industry best practice and legal requirements. Hence, the purpose of the project was to identify relevant risk exposure related data and legal frameworks applicable to health and safety for the tourism industry in the states of Queensland and Victoria.
