Fostering Reconciliation Through Tourism

Posted on: Mon 19 Jun 2017

Indigenous tourism is defined as “tourism activities  in which indigenous people are directly involved either through control and/or by having their culture serve as the essence of the attraction”.

According to Senior Lecturer in Tourism from the University of South Australia, Dr Freya Higgins-Desbiolles, this concept could be key to bringing about reconciliation in Australia.

Breakfast Producer Milly Schultz-Boylen spoke with  Dr  Higgins-Desbiolles about how indigenous tourism could help heal the division between indigenous and non-indigenous Australians.
