A case study methodology was used to investigate the opportunities for using 'soft' and 'hard' mining project infrastructure to support the development of indigenous tourism operations in northern Australia. Key objectives were to: - Assess the potential to develop existing natural and indigenous cultural tourism resources in areas proximate to mining operations; - Identify how mining operations could support indigenous tourism ventures in these areas; and - Assess the willingness of mining companies and indigenous communities to cooperate in such initiatives.
