This presentation formed the basis of the webinar organised for students of the College of Sciences and Engineering of the School of Technology, Environments and Design, University of Tasmania with the topic of ‘Geoheritage and Geotourism’. The take-aways from the webinair were
Geotourism is holistic and ‘place based’ with geology and landscapes as its base.
The right balance needs to be determined between exposing geosites for public visitation & geoconservation needs.
Geotourism must determine what measures are put in place or techniques used to respect geoconservation considerations.
Through the study of geomorphology, an understanding of landscapes can enhance outstanding, interpretative experiences for visitors.
The application of new digital technologies can add considerable value to the geotourism experience.
Geoheritage needs to embrace both fossil & mineral treasures.
