Abstract

Research into Special Interest Tourism (SIT) has been on the rise and this is far from a foreign phenomenon in South Korean tourism. This paper identifies similarities and differences in promotional themes for South Korean general and golf tourists to Queensland, Australia. Using tourist brochures and websites prepared for and used by the two different types of tourists, content and semiotic analyses were conducted. There was only one theme observed in common from the two sets of data from the study findings. Based upon some uniquely golf tourism-oriented characteristics, this paper provides implications for government and tourism marketers.
