In 2010, the Institute for Sustainable Futures (ISF) at the University of Technology, Sydney was commissioned to develop a set of Australian tourism Sustainability Performance Indicators (SPI) relevant at the national and destination levels. The project was managed by the National Tourism Alliance (NTA) and was directed by a National Steering Committee that represented the major stakeholder organisations in the industry, including the major peak industry bodies. This report, which is the first of three final reports from the project, provides a summary of how the framework was prepared, introduces its main features and indicates how the information is presented. 2. Final Report No. 2: Preparing the Framework, which outlines the process undertaken to develop the indicator framework. 3. Final Report No. 3: Detailed Indicator Framework, which provides the details of the proposed indicator framework including sources of information and data.
