Noosa Campus helps host visitors from Lombok, tourism on agenda
Published on 15 October, 2012
A dozen government, industry and community representatives from the island of Lombok have visited Queensland as part of an AusAID-funded Indonesian Australian Leadership Award Fellowship (ALAF) program, project-managed by Sunshine Coast University (SCU).
This first collaboration on tourism between the two universities now delivering higher education options on the Sunshine Coast was due to the CQUniversity Noosa Campus engagement and expertise in current sustainable tourism issues and policies in Indonesia.
CQUniversity Tourism academic Steve Noakes said the on-campus symposium also involved senior representatives from local organisations the Noosa Campus is actively engaged with, such as Noosa Biosphere, Tourism Noosa and the Sunshine Coast Regional Council.
