Nature Based Tourism
The nature based tourism sector contributes $23 billion to the Australian economy each year and is a crucial aspect of Australia’s reputation as a ‘clean, green’ tourism destination. Our natural assets give us a unique competitive advantage in the global market – but they must be appropriately protected, managed and developed.
Tourism & Transport Forum (TTF) strongly supports the sustainable development of nature based tourism through partnerships between the tourism industry, government and the conservation sector. In 2007, the federal Minister for Tourism launched TTF's Natural Tourism Partnerships Action Plan, which sets a framework for public-private partnerships to enhance natural tourism and conservation in Australian Parks.
The Natural Tourism Panel of TTF members includes Australia’s leading national and marine park management agencies, owners and operators of nature based resorts and attractions, tourism marketing organisations and conservation organisations.
