Disclaimer

Key departmental publications, e.g. annual reports, budget papers and program guidelines are available in our online archive.

Much of the material listed on these archived web pages has been superseded, or served a particular purpose at a particular time.

Coastal Tourism - A Manual for Sustainable Development

Based on a draft paper prepared by Southern Cross University
Portfolio Marine Group, Environment Australia, 1997
ISBN 0 642 27129 1

Part 4 - Useful contacts and references

This part of the manual contains contact details for government departments, professional bodies and other organisations that can help with your coastal tourism development by providing information or helping you find others who can. It also lists some references that you may find useful and tells you how to get them.

Useful contacts

Local information is often what you require to find out about local plans, issues and concerns. The contacts listed in this section cannot, in general, provide you with local advice, but may be able to put you in touch with relevant local organisations, community groups and professionals.

If you are planning a development, in most cases the best place to start for information and advice is the local council.

Other sources of local advice that may be valuable include:
