TOURISM 32S - Semester 2

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr C. Stoddart

Recommended Prior Learning

Geography and Tourism at Year 11 or 12 is an advantage. English at Level 2 is desirable.

Tourism comprises the activities of persons traveling to and staying in places outside their usual environment for not more than one consecutive year for leisure, business and other purposes.

This semester focuses on Australia as a travel destination including learning about the geography and climate of selected states/territories as well as transportation, accommodation, activities and events in selected states/territories.

Queenstown tourism is also analysed and students are expected to describe the characteristics of the region, prepare an itinerary for a visit by a tourist group, and present a promotional campaign to a specified audience.

Future Possibilities
Tertiary courses leading to a National Certificate in Tourism and Travel. A Bachelor of Tourism degree at Lincoln University is another possibility.
