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.

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.
