  • Reflection three years later


Bones bricks boulders and bitumen

  • Cultural Tourism

  • Like ‘culture’ difficult to define

  • People places and artifacts

  • Includes fairs, museums, galleries, restaurants, theatres, gardens, and craft shops

  • High and popular

  • Niche but an important sector of the tourism industry


Bones bricks boulders and bitumen

  • Interpretation

  • Found at eco/cultural attractions

  • A form of communication

  • Used to inform, excite, create interest, modify behaviour ....

  • Stand alone, connected to an object or part of a trail

  • Information vs interpretation

With cultural tourism and interpretation in mind the Yurrebilla Trail Feasibility Report was ‘attacked’.

  • Methodology:

  • Feasibility report ‘tested’

  • Walked the trail

  • Built on existing ideas and developed more

  • Heavy focus on inventory of what facilities currently exist

  • Incorporating the trail into local, state and federal tourism plans

  • Historic research

AND

perhaps surprisingly, to get people off the trail

The Yurrebilla Trail is a marked trail with its own interpretation BUTThere are also many attractions and facilities off the trail which can increase the attractiveness of the Yurrebilla TrailCultural Corridors are not an entirely new concept

Cultural tourism, interpretation, cultural corridors

and the YT

  • direct people to places of interest, without removing the discovery aspect

  • encourages people to linger longer

  • highlights facilities and attractions

  • broadens the appeal of the trail by value adding

  • 80 page interpretive guide being produced with information about services close to the trail

  • packages developed with tour operators and accommodation providers

Title of the session should have become evident

Building connections – between the YT and the corridors

In the corridors ‘trailers’ will find

Bones – the living and past culture of the place – people

Bricks – built heritage – churches and houses

Boulders– the natural environment – native flora and fauna

Bitumen– roads – connecting the trail to the corridors


Bones bricks boulders and bitumen

Points to conclude…

It is sometimes advisable to leave a designated track

Multiple corridors

Multiple appeal
