This report provides a summary of three individual project components that identify the interaction between tourism organisations in the study regions. This interaction was found by determining the networks of relationships between organisations. This report compares the three individual projects for their usefulness and provides recommendations on the further development of a tourism organisation network analysis method.

As demand grows for tourism opportunities within Australian protected areas, partnerships are increasingly seen as the way forward in dealing with the variety of interests involved and ensuring that sustainability goals are pursued. Previous tourism partnership research has not made the most of opportunities to consult related literature from a broad range of disciplines and use associated theoretical developments as a basis for analysis. This technical report addresses this gap through a multi-disciplinary review of partnerships research to reconcile the often multifarious definitions of partnership and allied concepts, such as collaboration and cooperation, and the various meanings given to success, as well as to identify factors which might impact upon partnership success or failure.

This research study aimed to examine the relationships between NPWS and its private visitor service providers (‘Lessees’).

The recognition that small to medium tourism enterprises (SMTEs) are a vital part of the tourism sector emphasises the importance of ensuring that their communication, learning and information dissemination and acquisition practices are as efficient as possible. This is especially the case since SMTEs are often under-resourced and time poor. Currently, our understanding of these practices and their implications for improving information provision and utilisation in SMTEs is limited. This research starts to address this gap and further our understanding of the information, communication and training needs of this sector of the tourism industry.
