Moving from resources to tourism is a bigger leap than we think

Char-lee McLenna writes in The Conversation (2.3.15) that ‘a report by the Griffith Institute for Tourism ‘Overcoming structural lock-in‘ has found that the transition back to tourism – particularly in regions that have become resource dependent – may be very difficult. Investigating two resource dependent regions in Queensland (Gladstone and Roma), the research found that the regions have become dependent on the resources sector and this has impacted tourism in many ways.’
