Why study tourism? The sociology of tourism is an underdevel-. oped discipline (Urry, 1995). History/Urban History Conference, December. 1996, Monash University, Office of Continuing. The industry contributes over 10% of the GDP to the national economy. However, considering that the industry experienced a slump over the period 1994-2003, there are challenges on how to sustain the current tempo of growth in the midst of growing competition, especially in wildlife-based tourism.

Sadly, it is more than likely the koala will go on serving the national interest through its role in tourism even if it was to tragically go extinct in the wild.

In 2020, Australia has 68 zoos and wildlife parks exhibiting just under 900 koalas. A photograph with a koala is a must-have souvenir for many international tourists. Sadly, it is more than likely the koala will go on serving the national interest through its role in tourism even if it was to tragically go extinct in the wild. Most koala tourism is based on experiences with captive koalas. And extinction hasn't been a problem elsewhere: Tasmanian Tourism uses a stylized image of the thylacine in its logo.

Tourism is arguably one of the largest .

Tourism is arguably one of the largest self-initiated commercial interventions to create well-being and happiness on the entire planet. Yet there is a lack of specific attention to the ways in which we can better understand and evaluate the relationship between well-being and travel. This volume will interest those who study and practise tourism as well as scholars and graduate students in a range of disciplines such as psychology, sociology, business and leisure.

This book applies the major concepts and research findings from a number of the central areas of psychology to tourism and tourist behaviour. The book is in two parts: individual psychological perspectives and their application to tourism behaviour; and social, community and work conceptualizations of the tourism industry. In part 1 chapters cover topics such as tourism motivation, personality and tourism, attitudes and tourism, and the environment and tourism. Part 2 includes topics for focusing on tourism marketing, human resources management and the tourism industry, evaluation and tourism, and the social impacts of tourism. At the conclusion of each chapter is a case study which presents current Australian research in that area. This book should be of value as an introduction to the area of psychology and tourism, and should be useful not only to those in an educational context who need a current text on this topic, but also to those in the tourism/hospitality industry who wish to learn more about this subject.
