Abstract

Although Australia does not have a published Sport Tourism strategy, sport tourism in Australia is flourishing. Sport plays a vitally important role in Australian culture, which helps explain the high per capital investment that is put into sporting facilities and sport training in Australia. Now that the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games are but a memory, it will be interesting to observe whether government expenditure on sport training remains at the same level. In relation to tourism, there is now a widespread recognition amongst Australians of its importance for the nation’s economy. The connection between sport and tourism has been highlighted by the prominence given to special events, many of which relate to sporting activities.

Chicago Image project

2007-02-26 21:36:10 by claw_of_archimedes

Hey everyone! I go to School at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and am currently enrolled in an urban geography class. Our current project is to begin to define an image of the city of Chicago. Our group chose a cultural angle based on what travel sites and other tourist sites touted as Chicago's premier cultural attractions. They boiled down to these groups (see below). I'd really appreciate some help on this one. The weather here is really NOT facilitating the interviewing strategy I had in mind. It's a really quick survey - the first thing that pops into your head. It doesn't matter if you're a resident, a visitor or live in an entirely different country

  • Avatar ned_34 What is this type of tourism called?

    For example, you have a special event, say the Australian Open Tennis, it attracts people from all over Australia and possibly overseas, they go to the tennis, but while also in Melbourne they visit other attractions and contribute to the economy....anyone know what this is called?
    Thanks for the attempt, but really it does not have to involve sports. Ie come for a music festivel and go to a casino or something.

    Im pretty sure there is a word for it, just cant put my finger on it.

    Any information about sport in Canberra is appreciated

    • The area around Canberra is pretty good for birding. There are about 6 or 8 national parks within 100 km. You can probably pick up 200 to 250 different birds. A couple of the prettier are Flame Robin and Easthern Rosella
