I gained so much from this trip, from experiences I never thought were possible and friends from all over the world. I was able to climb the Sydney Harbor Bridge, swim at the Great Barrier Reef and go white water rafting at the Tully River.

About

This five-week course is coordinated by a lecturer in UNSW’s Tourism and Hospitality Management Unit. The 75-hour program comprises lectures, industry case studies, workshops, industry presentations, field excursions and travel throughout some of the most prominent and diverse tourist destinations in Australia. At these locations students come face to face with tourism and recreation management issues facing public and private organizations across the broad spectrum of sectors that comprise the tourism industry. The combination of theory and real life business management case studies provide students with a uniquely engaging and enriching way of learning how Australia is addressing the challenge of sustainability, within the context of tourism and recreation management. Through field trips to businesses and key attractions at the various geographic locations, students will experience first hand the behind-the-scenes operations necessary for orchestrating the great ‘tourist theme park’ which is Australia. The interdisciplinary approach utilized throughout the program, incorporating marketing, business management, sociology, psychology, history and biology, aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills that can be used in a range of industries and future careers.

Today tourism is the world’s largest industry and its biggest employer. The significance of tourism to the Asia Pacific region and in particular Australia is in line with this trend. From small beginnings a mere 20 years ago, tourism is now Australia’s largest revenue earner and, according to independent research (Tourism NSW), is America’s most desirable destination. Australia has been described as ‘the world’s greatest tourist playground offering the most exciting and diverse range of experiences imaginable’. Students participating in this course will visit many of its stunning natural, cultural and man-made attractions. In doing so, they will discover the marketing and management techniques that have been used to create such impressive tourism growth whilst conserving the natural and built heritage environments credited with attracting tourists in the first place.
