Abstract

This paper examines tourism policies and actions in rural New South Wales. It explaines the roles of the New South Wales Tourism Commission, the New England Tourism Development Authority, and New South Wales State and Local Government planning legislation. In response to what is clearly a complex and neglected public policy sector, several suggestions are made as to rural tourism policy and research priorities. Particular attention is given to aspects of co-ordination and power in rural tourism policy formulation and implementation.
