Tourism in Tasmania
This book is a truly Tasmanian project. It consists of 21 chapters, written by 27 scholars, most of whom are at the University of Tasmania, and published by Forty South. It is edited by Professor Can-Seng Ooi and Associate Professor Anne Hardy of the university. The book is written for the general audience.
The chapters cover a wide range of topics, including balanced tourism development, a tourism vision, cruise ship, Airbnb, heritage, nature, wine tourism, Chinese visitors, road kills, job polarisation, and using tourist attractions as a resource for the local community.
The diverse and contrasting perspectives reflect the complex relations between tourism and society.
The University of Tasmania is committed to place-based research and community engagement. This book offers a means by which the University of Tasmania can contribute towards discussions on the future of tourism in Tasmania.
