Comments Off on Essential Australia: Towards a Thematic Framework for the Interpretation of Cultural Heritage Sites in Tourism

The principle aim of this study was to develop a set of themes for the  interpretation, marketing and development of cultural heritage tourism products and services in Australia. Ultimately the framework will be used by a wide range of heritage tourism operators and managers. A user-friendly kit will assist these groups to use the framework to create engaging heritage tourism products and interpretation, establish market differentiation, and cooperate in regional marketing through the development of complementary heritage attractions.

The aim of this research project was to develop, test and refine an evaluation tool kit for assessing the impacts of interpretation on visitors at heritage, nature and food and beverage tourism sites. In particular, we sought to develop a package that was user-friendly and practical for operators to use, yet based on theory and rigorous research methods.

This project principally examined the potential impact the turbulence created by the passage of cruise ships may have on fragile benthic marine biota and additional aspects such as potential wave wake erosion of channel banks. It is based on research undertaken to determine whether small, expedition-style cruise ships should be  permitted to enter past Port Davey and into Bathurst Channel within the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, Australia.

This study presents a framework for the development of social indicators to measure the impact of tourism on communities. It is a research project which emanated from the Green Globe 21 Standard that incorporates  indicators for the environmental impact of tourism and seeks to develop other indicators. The report provides the theoretical background to the concept of sustainable tourism and examines the preliminary findings of the key themes from some exploratory research.
