What does ‘TOURISM’ mean? ‘.the movement of people to places outside their normal places of work and community.’ Selecting a country other than Australia, as the focus for Assessment Task 3 –Tourism Expo. Look at all the other countries in the world: -be adventurous -find out the latest tourist destination -don’t just choose countries everyone will choose -help Expo visitors expand their knowledge of our world I could really use a 3 week break .relax in a sunny climate, visit some famous monuments, have fun at festivals, learn about a new culture. I live here, l work here, I pay taxes here.I have a passport from this country. This is my ‘home’. Think about: Where could someone living in Australia a tourist ELSEWHERE in the world? (*Students must select a country other than Australia as their tourist destination for this unit of work.) The United Nations World Travel Organisation Guidelines in 2010 definition of Tourism: “.the activities of people who visit destinations outside their usual environment for less than a year for holidays, leisure and recreation, business, health, education or other purposes.” In the past a ‘tourist’ referred only to those travelling for leisure.

Managing the time effectively the key to preparing an engaging tourist booth Keep in mind: available class time, activities to be done, encouraging each other, keeping each other on your group is ready for Wednesday 29th, November 2017. PLEASE expect some ‘teacher directed’ activities throughout this unit-to help Groups understand ‘TOURISM’ and its impact on people and the environment and to help you design a booth which attracts lots of visitors at the Expo.

What do ‘professional’ TOURISM EXPOs’ look like? When: OUR Expo Wed. 22nd November, 2017 4:30 -5:30 PM Wilding Wing

Past student’s TOURISM EXPO photos.create an interesting booth!

Some really important administrative considerations. Think carefully when you are planning the look of your Expo booth: The group will be responsible for most expenses they choose to include in planning the look of their Expo booth. Planning a creative booth may lead to added expense which the Humanities Faculty is unable to cover (*teachers need to be fair to all groups). Students in each group must plan carefully what they need to create an engaging booth. They should itemize all possible expenses.then work out what the group can/cannot afford. About Food: There are strict (legal) rules for any groups who choose to include hot or cold foods as part of their presentation booth. Cold foods: lollies, biscuits, chips, Hot foods: pastries, meat, . Drinks: teas, *No Alcohol allowed. ALL food ON a GROUP’S table MUST also have a list of ingredients alongside the food. *Any visitor with allergies is then able to decide whether or not they are able to taste the food. Printing in colour does cost more. Some travel agencies in Ballarat may be willing to provide some information or items which could be helpful to you. Creating some items may take time –don’t leave things to the last minute. Members of your group MAY have items at home they are willing to loan. Create a mock-up of your Expo booth: on paper/IPAD FIRST. Assess how engaging it looks – consider how it could be more engaging to visitors. See the teacher about issues .as they arise. Don’t leave problems until the last minute to resolve!

VISITORS to our Expo will: -collect a PASSPORT when they arrive -visit different booths: viewing presentations, collecting souvenirs, maybe tasting some food, asking lots of questions .please be polite and prepared -place your country’s emblem/flag sticker in the correct place on their Passport. *Some sample Passport stamps below: which country would a tourist have visited if the following stamps are in their passport? ? ? ? ? ? DID YOU KNOW. The government of another nation could refuse to allow you entry to their country – they could just place you on the next plane back home if a Custom’s Officer considers you untrustworthy or a potentially dangerous ‘visitor’. This is what real passports look like: Without a passport -issued by the government to you- it would be impossible to travel to other countries as a tourist (or for work purposes).your opportunities in life would be limited! *A person COULD hold passports from more than one country: -the one their parents were born and -the one they choose to become a ‘naturalized citizen’ in. All visitors to Australia, apart from New Zealanders, require advance permission to enter the country. For most countries, a full visa is required. *Most people from overseas may apply electronically for a ‘Travel Authority’ authorization. *IMPORTANCE OF OUR TOURISM INDUSTRIES Tourism is one of Australia’s largest export areas and contributes over 40 billion to the economy annually.this contribution is likely to grow over coming years. In the year 2015, there were 7.4 million visitors/ tourists coming to Australia. Tourism employed 580,800 people in Australia in 2014-15 –it has been estimated this number WILL increase by 2020. Monthly visitor departures, by state where they spent the most time, since 1991. New South Wales, Queensland, and Victoria are the top three states for visitor numbers. Did you know -Tourism is the largest and fastest growing industry in the world .in 1999 -Tourists spent 50 billion in Canada -Tourists spent 1.82 billion in Nova Scotia -Tourism was the largest ‘employer’ of Canadians (546,000 tourism employees) *You may be employed in the Australian tourism industry in the future. 2016 –tourism brought 1.5 billion dollars to the Australian economy: so how important is tourism to any country!
