Tourism Project Feasibility Guide

The step-by-step 28 page guide to starting a new tourism business is very practical, but nonetheless, very valuable in helping to grow the tourism industry. The publication is targeted at local communities, potential investors and tourism operators, with an emphasis on smaller visitor attractions.

It includes a checklist of key steps to be considered before establishing or investing in a visitor attraction. There is advice on project development including feasibility work, financing and project management. The new guide also includes case studies of successful tourism infrastructure development projects. The guide will also be useful for local governments, state government agency regional directors, investors and developers.

Case studies of successful tourism ventures contained in the guide include:

  • RiverLife adventure and activity operation in Brisbane
  • Lagoon at Airlie Beach in the Whitsundays
  • Outback@Isa underground mine experience and fossil centre at Mount Isa
  • Gold Coast Convention Centre
