This study aims to enhance the understanding of tourist experiences and behaviour in urban destinations by analysing the spatial movements of tourists, identifying the key attributes they are seeking in urban destinations, determining how important these attributes are to their experiences, evaluating how two urban destinations performed in relation to these attributes, and assessing whether there are key differences between different types of visitors to urban destinations. The ultimate aim of this project is to inform and guide the future governance and improved functioning of urban tourism destinations by developing a better understanding of the tourist in such settings.

The research project conducted fieldwork in a number of case studies in metropolitan and regional and rural areas of New South Wales and Victoria in order to investigate and explore the intersection between traditional and new cultural landscape precincts and the current and future patterns of Australian tourism. Cultural landscapes of tourism are diverse in character. This project compared the more ‘traditional’ cultural tourist precinct of Sydney’s Art Gallery of New South Wales and Woolloomooloo Finger Wharf with the cosmopolitan cultural diversity of ethnic precincts including Sydney’s and Melbourne’s Chinatown and Melbourne’s Little Italy, Lygon Street.

Dolphin Tourism: Impact of Vessels on the Behaviour and Acoustics of Inshore Bottlenose Dolphins

Categories: Fauna, Oceania, Pacific, Planet, Transportation
Comments Off on Dolphin Tourism: Impact of Vessels on the Behaviour and Acoustics of Inshore Bottlenose Dolphins

This report contains background information on the dolphin tourism industry, the impacts of vessel-based encounters on the behaviour and acoustics of wild dolphins, and the management of dolphin-human encounters. The report outlines the methods and results of a study investigating the influence of different types of vessels (motor vessel, yacht and kayak) on the behaviour and acoustics of dolphins in a region with relatively low levels of human activities. The results of this study may be used as a baseline for further research in this field where dolphins have had long-term or more intensive exposure to vessels and other human activities. A discussion comparing the findings of this research to other studies is provided, together with recommendations for improvement of current dolphin-watching guidelines and management regulations in Australia.
