Sustainable Tourism Development and Stakeholder Analysis: The Freycinet Lodge Case in Tasmania

  • Peter Dixon

Tasmania is a small island state of Australia with approximately half a million people. The Tasmanian government would like to encourage tourism to improve employment opportunities for its people, and one popular national park in Tasmania’s eastern region has been earmarked as a destination with the potential. However, to increase visitor numbers, both accommodation and the park’s facilities will need to be improved. How do we do this? How do we balance the needs of the government, the developer, and the environmental value of the national park? This case study presents the views of three stakeholders. The teaching materials require participants to develop their own stakeholder plan and to investigate stakeholder tools.
