This report outlines the development of a research strategy for cultural heritage tourism in Australia. It identifies broad areas of mutual research interest in heritage conservation and tourism management to foster synergies and cooperation between these fields. The strategy is defined and structured to allow flexibility and adaptability in response to emerging issues and local specificity. It achieves this through the identification of key areas of research interest that serve to guide and link a number of related questions. This provides an overarching framework for long-term, integrated research goals. The report further identifies illustrative projects that demonstrate how such conceptual research can be implemented through small-scale, local, applied and consultancy projects. The report thus provides a strategy to address broad research questions through a number of related small-scale projects.
