by STCRC and Lorne Kriwoken, Nick Holmes, John Williamson, Melissa Giese, Helen Achurch, S Robinson, Claire Ellis and Murray Johnson

Antarctica is a growing international tourist destination and is marketed as a unique nature-based experience. This snapshot document profiles key STCRC research in the field of Antarctic and sub-Antarctic tourism and the protection of the region’s wildlife. Celebrated as two of the greatest natural wonders of the world, both Macquarie Island, Heard Island and McDonald Islands, Australia’s only sub-Antarctic island groups, were granted World Heritage status on 3 December 1997. The project researched and developed Australia’s Antarctic and sub-Antarctic tourism opportunities by: assessing multi-jurisdictional legal, administrative and environmental requirements for Australian operators in Antarctica; researching the role, significance and vulnerability of wildlife tourism in the development of the Antarctic tourism product; and developing a multimedia virtual tour of Tasmania’s Antarctic and Southern Ocean sites.

by Wade L. Hadwen, Angela H. Arthington, Paul I. Boon, Muriel Lepesteur and Arthur McComb

This study investigated the importance of aquatic ecosystems to tourism and recreation and assessed the potential and current impacts of this resource use on the sustainability of aquatic ecosystems in Australia. Through literature searches and the development of surveys we aimed to integrate current ‘on-the-ground’ activities with what is known of the impacts of tourism and recreation on aquatic ecosystems worldwide. We propose a suite of research and development priorities and opportunities arising from this that will enhance our understanding of ecosystem responses to tourism and recreation and facilitate the sustainable management of Australia’s in demand aquatic resources.
