Definition of Tourism
Definition: Tourism = the temporary movement of people outside their normal place of residence or work
Global tourism is a large, complex economic activity, both organisationally and regionally
One way of categorising tourism is into:
Charter tourism: package & group tours, e.g. Fiji holiday, Danube River cruise
Mass-individual tourism: every day holiday destinations, often crowded and popular e.g. Bali, Skiing
Adventure tourism: Experiences not as common, e.g. the Amazon, Machu Picchu, the Sahara
Extreme tourism: need to be prepared and informed, often expensive. E.g. mountain climbing
Australia’s economy benefits significantly from tourism, generating jobs, investment and growth in communities throughout Australia. Tourism has the potential to be one of Australia’s key strengths and a sector which is set for supercharged growth in the Australian economy
