Research findings showed that regional destinations that have a strong level of support from their State or territory governments, well-established regional and/or local tourism organisations, supportive local governments, and local leaders that foster and implement a shared vision for sustainable tourism are well-placed to innovate, compete and implement sustainable tourism best practice in the future. For each best practice principle identified in the research, best practice snapshots are presented based on leading destination case studies in Australia.


Innovation in tourism and destination management is a significant part of a destination’s long-term sustainability and success. For further information, please see the section on ‘Innovation in Tourism’.
