Following discussions within the Tourism and Climate Change Taskforce in 2007–2008, STCRC decided to undertook a study of the potential adaptations to climate change in five key tourist destinations in Australia: Kakadu National Park, the Cairns region (including the Great Barrier Reef and Wet Tropics rainforest), the Blue Mountains, the Barossa Valley and the Victorian Alps.  The research project examines existing knowledge on anticipated biophysical changes and, through primary research (stakeholder interviews and social learning workshops), gauges the expected adaptive approaches of destination communities and the tourism sector to these changes for 2020, 2050 and 2070. It then estimates likely economic ...Read more

It then estimates likely economic consequences. This technical report presents the research findings in full and supports the summary developed by STCRC.

    Great Barrier Reef has a tropical climate influenced by two major forces in the southern hemisphere circulation, the equatorial low pressure area in the summer and sub tropical high pressure area during the winter months. Australian Open in the South Pacific, its climate is strongly influenced by both the adjacent land mass and ocean effects. Wind patterns are dominated by the majority of traffic in the southeast. January to March, the north westerly winds prevail in the Nordic region under the influence of inter tropical monsoonal front. Rainfall is seasonally and geographically diverse. http://www.travelaustralia360.com/
