Australia has some of the most spectacular tourism destinations in the world.
World Heritage areas like the Great Barrier Reef, Kakadu and the Wet Tropics are famous for their natural values and tourism experience. Protecting these places is in the interest of our natural heritage and our economy: tourism brings in around $35 billion each year and employs over half a million people.
The mining boom has driven up the Australian dollar which has seen tourism demand take a hit.
The Greens are working to bring balance to the economy and ensuring Australia’s position as a world-class tourist destination is maintained by protecting our natural wonders.
