The Center for Responsible Travel (CREST) has published their annual report on the state of responsible tourism:

“This 2016 version of CREST’s annual study demonstrates that the growth of responsible tourism continues to outpace growth of the tourism industry as a whole. In addition, the 2016 report concludes that “the social and environmental imperative for responsible travel” is being spurred, in part, by the twin crises of wealth inequality and climate change. The report was prepared in collaboration with 16 leading tourism organizations and institutions.”

The report also puts a spotlight on the growing niche markets of adventure tourism, agritourism, culinary or gastronomic tourism, orange tourism, wellness tourism, and the sharing economy (e.g., Uber and AirBnB).

With the aim of providing a total picture of tourism’s contribution to each of the state and territory economies, the Sustainable Tourism Cooperative Research Centre’s Centre for Economics and Policy (STCRC CEP) has estimated the indirect effects of tourism consumption in order to complement the previously published STCRC TSA estimates of tourism’s direct effects. In this report, we present results of a study of the indirect economic contribution of tourism to Australia and to the Australian states and territories for the period 2003–04.

The beach is generally recognised as the most important recreation amenity in the region for Gold Coast residents, as well as tourists. However, there is very little data to support the role that this amenity plays in the life of Gold Coast residents. This survey set out to collect data from Gold Coast residents regarding their beach use and the values they associate with the beach, and to develop estimates of the economic value of the beach to residents.

Disaggregating National Tourism Data to Regional Areas

Comments Off on Disaggregating National Tourism Data to Regional Areas

This paper reports on the development and application of a methodology to convert large scale data such as the International Visitor Survey (IVS) and the National Visitor Survey (NVS) into a format that can be used at the local level. The most significant contribution of this disaggregation technique is that it can bring a wide body of data including all that which is incorporated in the IVS and NVS as well as Census and other geographically based data into a highly focused analysis of a small, local area; an activity which has not been feasible with existing public datasets.

The need for data on the recreational use of the alpine area of Kosciuszko National Park is important for the sustainable visitor use of the highest area in Australia. Previous visitor monitoring surveys and estimations of  visitor numbers have shown significant increases in visitation between the late 1970s and the early 1990s. Over the 1999/2000 summer, a 40 day monitoring program was undertaken for the Kosciuszko alpine area by the New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife Service in conjunction with the Sustainable Tourism Cooperative Research Centre.

This report provides the latest information about the characteristics and behaviours of visitors for the tourism industry, managers, and other research projects based in the Ningaloo Coastal Region. The Ningaloo Destination Modelling (NDM) project is a collaborative project between researchers from seven Australian universities and Sustainable Tourism Cooperative Research Centre that will deliver a scenario planning tool that assesses the social, environmental and economic impact of tourism planning strategies in order to assist tourism planning in a region that relies on its unique natural attractions.

Tourists do not make travel decisions in a vacuum. The decision to spend money on tourism occurs in the context of the other potential uses of discretionary resources and their corresponding values or utilities. This study has therefore researched the conjoint decision of allocating and spending discretionary resources through the conduct of a choice experiment so that the trade-offs involved could be empirically assessed. The data provides an insight into how each type of discretionary expenditure is valued and how each type competes for a share of the discretionary expenditure ‘pie’. We discuss the results with an emphasis on the  implications for tourism.
