Projects

Exploring the use of tourism as a support mechanism to the value chain of small, premium niche producers in rural Tasmania. (2017)$6,000
Description
Although the economic impact of Tourism in Australia continues to grow the majority of visitors are concentrated in Metropolitan areas. There is therefore fierce competition to attract the smaller numbers of tourists who venture to rural locations. This is particularly true of international visitors. On a more optimistic note, the rise in interest in local production of premium products such as wine, fruit, cider, beer and spirits may provide a competitive advantage for small businesses to lure visitors to their locations. The success of Tourism Australias Restaurant Australia campaign highlighted the broad range of high quality food and beverages that are produced in Tasmania. The project aims to explore how Tasmanian producers of niche beverages add value to their business by attracting visitors to sample and purchase their produce where it has been produced.
