Comments Off on An Investigation into the Incorporation of Leading Edge Mobile Technologies in the Recreational and Adventure Tourism Industries

The project investigated the feasibility of delivering wireless Location Based Information (LBS) services in a regional Australian adventure tourism context. The services were delivered through the use of Global Positioning System (GPS) satellite technologies. The project findings established the feasibility of service delivery and will contribute to the establishment of a regional mobile implementation strategy for LBS in the adventure tourism industry. The outcomes of the project include: a strategic plan for the delivery of LBS services over handheld devices; a proof of concept generalisable solution; and formal partnerships with the tourism and recreation industries.

The aim of this research project was to develop, test and refine an evaluation tool kit for assessing the impacts of interpretation on visitors at heritage, nature and food and beverage tourism sites. In particular, we sought to develop a package that was user-friendly and practical for operators to use, yet based on theory and rigorous research methods.

The South Australian Country Fire Service has developed a hierarchy of places that can offer relative safety from bushfire. They are broken into three categories, and are called Bushfire Safer Settlements, Bushfire Safer Precincts and Last Resort Refuges. It is important that you know what each of these are, where they are, and what risk you may be exposed to if you use one of these options during a bushfire.

This self-assessment checklist has been developed to help you assess where your company stands in integrating responsible environmental practices. The initial 13 questions are relevant to all forms of marine recreation, while three additional sections offer supplemental questions for providers in specific sectors: interactive marine wildlife trips, recreational fishing, and snorkeling, diving and scuba.    Each question addresses a key issue and proposes a good practice. In addition to providing a useful tool to marine recreation providers, this checklist is being used by major tourism companies, including tour operators, cruise lines and hotels, to identify and select responsible service providers.
