The aim of the research was to bring the insights and interdisciplinary expertise of the research team to develop best business practice case studies in accessible tourism. This project builds upon the STCRC-funded workshop held on 12 July 2005: Sydney—Setting a Research Agenda for Accessible Tourism. Key findings are contained in the subsequent report (Darcy, 2006). This research project seeks to address the third prioritised outcome from that workshop: Industry Engagement—The Business Case for Accessible Tourism, by documenting the business case for accessible tourism through the development of business based, case studies of successful operators.

This document profiles key research into the field of disability and accessible tourism perspectives, a growing industry sector in Australia. It has been prepared to synthesise STCRC’s research in this area and to provide an easily digestible insight into the dynamics of this tourism segment. STCRC is confident this document and the individual research projects can be used to drive new strategies and actions to support the development of more accessible tourism experiences for travellers with a disability.
