About the report

The purpose of this presentation is to discuss the value of wetlands in ecotourism. In this presentation the term ‘ecotourism’ will be used in a general sense, equivalent to the term ‘nature-based tourism’. Our focus will be on nature-based tourism in the tropical wetlands of the Northern Territory, but parallels can be drawn with tourism ventures in wetlands throughout Australia.
