About this book

Environmental management can add to the costs of nature-based tourism businesses. Such costs can make tourism destinations less competitive, but the same activities can also enhance competitiveness by increasing demand. This book provides an assessment of the relative importance of these two effects in the form of a case study of nature-based tourism in Tropical North Queensland, Australia.


Contents

Tourism and the environment; the environment and tourism business strategy; environmental management and destination competitiveness; the tourism industry in tropical North Queensland; environmental management and tourism business costs; the environment and the demand for tourism; integrating demand and cost effects; implications for tourism destinations and environmental management.
