Comments Off on Learning Markets and Indigenous Tourism: Action Research Pilot of Developing a Learning Markets Cluster and Sample Itinerary in Central Australia

This project applied and evaluated Participatory Action Research Methodology (PARM) in the context of developing a Learning Markets cluster of Indigenous tourism operators in Central Australia.This led to developing and testing a Learning Markets itinerary establishing links with specialist distribution systems relevant for the Learning Markets sector. It was expected that this would allow building the capacity of local Indigenous tourism operators to understand, service and capitalise on this specialist market sector in the future

Comments Off on Indigenous Tourism Businesses in Queensland: Criteria for Success: Towards the Development of a National Diagnostic Tool for Indigenous Tourism Businesses

Little is known about the factors that contribute to the success and long-term viability of enterprises in Australia’s Indigenous tourism sector.  Given this, it was considered imperative to identify those underpinning factors that are associated with the success of Indigenous tourism enterprises. Utilising seven ‘successful’ case study businesses from Queensland, the research sought to explore the development, operation and management of these enterprises with the objective of identifying the inhibitors and facilitators to business success from the perspectives of both community operated organisations and individual entrepreneurs.

The objective of the research was to develop a ‘Story Audit Tool’ to be used in the field with Indigenous people and other key informants to collect local stories for use in tourism enterprises and marketing; establish a prototype Intellectual Property agreement for commercial tourism for the use of images, film and written accounts of local Indigenous stories in tourism; and critically review the Story Audit Tool as applied in the pilot projects at Groote Eylandt and Hermannsburg.

This project explores a range of issues relating to the collection, analysis and evaluation of visitor satisfaction information with a view to creating operational benchmarks and decisions processes that can guide and address managerial action. The key outcome of this study is the alignment of visitor satisfaction against the organisational missions and objectives as the criteria for judging visitor satisfaction. This study also provides a methodology for developing service benchmarks and ‘dissatisfaction’ tolerance levels for various operational objectives the organisation may be pursuing.

This study relied mainly on secondary data sourced directly from previous research projects conducted by STCRC in protected areas in Australia to review the management and visitor trends in national parks and other protected areas to review management practices, visitors, economic benefits, environmental impacts, education and interpretation and destinations marketing. An expert consultation was conducted to identify the trends in protected areas in Australia and internationally.

This scoping study seeks to provide an overview of current Indigenous cultural tourism in the Wet Tropics region of north-eastern Australia, and examines both the opportunities and impediments for Aboriginal operated tours in the mosaic of rural landscapes and protected areas that make up this region. In particular, the study aims to describe and assess enterprises that integrate knowledge of traditional Dyirbal dwellings, camps and building technologies and associated environmental knowledge (ethno-architecture) into cultural tours and experiences.
