A History of Australian Travel and Tourism
This history of Australian travel and tourism is set in the context of the world scene. The forces which have shaped modern tourism are all traced and then related to the Australian experience. The book deals primarily with the business of tourism, but the way Australian people travelled through the years and experienced tourism is also part of the story. It traces the beginning of tourism, the first attempts at defining it, how ways of measuring it were introduced, how the need for research was acknowledged, and how levels of education relating to hospitality and tourism were progressively raised.
