Tourism is an important industry to many nations worldwide. Rotorua on New Zealand's north island is the birthplace of tourism in that country, having hosted visitors to the city and surrounding area since the early 19th century. In this location based program we explore the geothermal features, Maori culture, the spa/health and wellbeing industry and the region's spectacular lakes and forests are the attractions that draw around four million visitors a year to Rotorua. This growth has led to the need to ensure that the tourism is sustainable economically, socially and environmentally. This engaging and informative resource is essential viewing for students of tourism and related studies.
