Capabilities: Recreation and Tourism

Environment North has undertaken a large number of recreation and tourism projects where we have successfully integrated biodiversity and cultural considerations into new tourism products in far north Queensland and South-east Asia.

A major example was our work on the Queensland Heritage Trails Network where we worked with recreation planners, cultural heritage specialists and tourism marketing professionals to design the interpretive framework for a network of 14 nature-based and cultural tourism products from Cardwell to Cooktown. This work involved identifying the values (and hence “the stories to be told”) across the region and then designing Detailed Interpretation Briefs to guide graphic designers in preparing interpretive material based on these values and stories.

  • Some other recreation and tourism projects are:
  • The Komodo National Park Visitor Strategy in Indonesia
  • Cape York Peninsula and Torres Strait Tourism Action Plan (in association with Kleinhardt FGI)
  • Queensland Heritage Trails Network – Information & Communication Technology Project, and Interpretive and licensing work for Raging Thunder (Tully and Barron River Rafting and Fitzroy Island).
