dc.description.abstractIn Australia, Indigenous culture has long been thought to have the potential to provide the country's tourism industry with a key point of differentiation (Buultjens et al., 2005). Thus Indigenous experiences have consistently remained an integral part of Australia's tourism product offering since the early 2000s (Department of Communications Information Technology and the Arts, 2003) and are marketed as one of the seven key experiences that underpin the country's global tourism marketing activities (see Tourism Australia, 2017). Similar to other parts of the world, the tourism industry in Australia has also been portrayed as a sector that can create socio-economic opportunities for Indigenous peoples through the development of tourism- ocused businesses and the generation of employment, especially in the regional and remote areas of the country (Buultjens & Gale, 2013; Coria & Calfucura, 2012; Fletcher et al., 2016). As a consequence of these potential benefits, consecutive Australian governments have consistently touted optimistic and favourable assessments of the opportunities tourism provides for Indigenous people (Ruhanen et al., 2015b).en_US
