  • Australia, NZ and much of the South Pacific was colonized by the British. However, only Australia and NZ saw large numbers of British people settle in the region. So we have lots of traditional ties to the UK in both countries Food (British style food, beer, etc. The British pub is common and an important part of the culture in Aussie and NZ) Tradition (holidays, religions, customs) Sports (rugby, soccer) VFR - large segment Also connection to the idea of the Gap year. What is the gap year? Look it up! Aborigines and Maoris Friction between original inhabitants and the settlers but they are also embraced in the national culture and contribute much to tourism though in different ways as we will be discussed later in the powerpoint
  • 86% of Australians live in cities Highly urbanized Most of the tourism is within urban areas (even though there are tourist resources throughout the country)
  • Indigenous people of Australia are called Aborigines Aboriginal Tourism can consist of – cultural performances, handicrafts, cultural interpretations In Australia, indigenous people have little say in tourism development or in the ways their heritage is used for tourism. Natural Environment Lowest average elevation of all the continents which mean that it is really old (Australia is mostly flat and Tasmania (island off south east coast is more mountainous) Climate change is having a serious impact Endmeic Species Meaning species only found naturally in Australia 95% of the fauna and 85% of the flora are only found in Australia
  • WHS *penal colonies after American Revolution in 1776 British prisoners started to be sent to Australia. Australia has been termed as a country of criminals. In the past this was a source of shame. However it became a point of pride after 1970 when Australia began to embrace this part of their culture. Now some former penal colonies are tourist attractions Backpacker Travel Market Well developed accommodations, nightlife, less expensive) Harvest Trial - work on farms Gold Coast - surfing, beach tourism Caravaning - rent a small RV and drive all over Transportation Large mostly empty country making transportation and communication difficult Most tourists opt to fly instead of other forms of transport as it is easier to cover larger spaces by plane so Qantas (the national airline) figures prominently in tourism in the country
  • An article on the labor strike is posted in the Additional Readings folder
  • Links from above http://www.tourism.australia.com/en-au/ http://www.australia.com/campaigns/season_06/en/index_uk.html Tourism Australia is the tourism organization for the country They ’ve embraced social networking and web marketing more than most and they are seen in the field as at the forefront using marketing strategies through social networking Watch these short “My trip in a minute videos” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=41EXJfKwkGA http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wEnUZD0BIAE&feature=relmfu There ’s nothing like Australia – global marketing campaign which features personal vacation experiences and recommendations. Go to the sites on the slide to learn more about the campaign
  • Sun Devils on the Sydney Harbor Bridge!
  • Major attractions of Australia Sydney Harbor Famous Beaches Blue Mts. Surfing Ayers Tock Animals Wallaby, cassowary
  • Kuranda scenic railway Koala kangaroo
  • North Island is more known for cultural tourism but has recreation and natural resources for tourism. More tourists go to the North Isalnd South is more known for adventure tourism The indigenous people of NZ are known as the Maori. They have been more involved in tourism planning than Aborigines. It is actually a requirement of the government. * Maori must approve of all uses of their heritage for tourism. This is a big contrast to Australia. How do you think this affects tourism or the tourist experience? Geo Thermal attractions geysers, hot springs, mud pools Cultural museums - historic architecture. Hot springs have long drawn tourists and Rotorua has been a resort town since the 1800 ’s so many historic buildings as well
  • LOTR - Lord of the Rings – even inspires the national airline of NZ http://www.youtube.com/airnewzealand Go to the Hobbit tab and click on the video called “an unexpected briefing” Christchurch Largest city on the South Island Large earthquake in early 2011 Settled by the British so the city as a very British feel with a main Cathedral Square, cobblestone streets and many parks and green spaces Gateway to Antarctica Agro-tourism Stay on farms Stay/work on farms WOOOFING (worldwide opportunities on organic farms)
  • Bungee jumping - adventure tourism Milford Sound Hobbiton - LOTR filming site
