Accommodation, transport and recreation facilities are key components of a major tourism destination, the Gold Coast. Plans for improving the overall attraction of a destination need to be based on detailed information highlighting the current state of such infrastructure. PLEASE NOTE: Graphics within are not of a high quality.

Cities account for 75% of the world’s energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. To tackle this, governments increasingly apply legislative measures to reign in carbon emissions and meet internationally agreed targets, while at the same time they commit significant investment towards infrastructure projects that stimulate growth and drive a sustainable global economy.

This report focuses on the concept and operation of sustainable tourism precincts in rural and regional areas. The successful development of new precincts and efficient maintenance of existing ones require the appreciation and implementation of a complex range of skills applied to a wide variety of interconnected issues. These include community dynamics, tangible physical infrastructure, the intangible characteristics and values of place, and understandings of sustainability. The study aims to improve understanding of rural and regional tourism precincts by:

  • providing a useful working definition of a precinct;
  • identifying the major issues of precinct development and maintenance;
  • summarising the theoretical and practical state of knowledge of these issues and identify ‘gaps’ in both knowledge and practice;
  • recommending areas of future action on precincts and precinct planning.

The primary aim of this study is to explore the feasibility of mountain resorts as sustainable year-round tourism destinations. To meet this aim, two studies were conducted. Firstly, an examination of the supply side perspective of mountain resort operations was seen as a useful starting point in determining the desire for and ability to provide year-round offerings at one resort in Victoria, Australia. Secondly, we explored international examples of mature mountain resorts that have evolved from single season resorts to year-round destinations.

The goal of this research is to gain a better understanding of how to leverage sport as a tool in the place of marketing strategy to develop the local economy.  This study investigates the policy process in sport and place marketing strategies by examining the planning, marketing, and implementation of pre-Games training for the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. In 2000, Australian public officials and businesses recognised the value of pre-games training prior to the Sydney Olympic Games and mounted an aggressive effort to leverage Olympic opportunities in the country.
