Abstract

Geotourism is a vital part of the tourism agenda. It focuses on experiencing the earth’s geological features in a way that fosters environmental and cultural understanding, appreciation and conservation, and is locally beneficial. It is about creating a geotourism product that protects geoheritage, helps build communities, communicates and promotes geological heritage and engages a wide range of different people. Global Geotourism Perspectives is a collection of case studies that supports this direction by providing examples of actual and developing geotourism from around the world. With contributions from a team of international researchers, specialists, practitioners and protected area managers, it illustrates how geotourism is developing in countries within six continents including Australia, Brazil, China, Greece, Ireland, Japan, Malaysia, Mauritius, Oman, South Africa and the USA.
