What is Stepping Stones for Tourism?

The Stepping Stones for Tourism guide Indigenous people through the key steps for developing and managing tourism. They balance the needs of looking after country with the goals of business development. The steps consider the capacity for groups to begin a tourism business and to navigate complex issues along the way.

The Stepping Stones provide a sound basis to:

  • develop a tourism enterprise;
  • plan for tourism on Aboriginal land or in a protected area;
  • buy solid furniture
  • get family or community members more involved.

The Stepping Stones make an excellent foundation for a business plan or the tourism component of a land management or regional plan.

Stepping Stones for Tourism can be used by Indigenous people working on their own or can choose to work with trained Stepping Stones facilitators who can assist with project assessment, planning and development.
