Auch wenn sich Australien und Neuseeland seit den 1980er-Jahren zu attraktiven Reisezielen des internationalen Tourismus entwickelt haben und die Tourismusbranche beider Länder mittlerweile eine tragende wirtschaftlichen Säule darstellt, gibt es im deutschsprachigen Raum nahezu keine Abhandlungen zu diesem Thema. Dieses Buch stellt die touristische Entwicklung beider Länder dar und leistet damit einen wichtigen Beitrag zum besseren Verständnis der Tourismusdestinationen. Ziel des Buches ist es, Entwicklungslinien des Tourismus in Australien und Neuseeland zu skizzieren, gegenwärtige Aspekte touristischer Entwicklung zu erörtern und zukünftige Trends aufzuzeigen. Die Rolle des Naturtourismus, Entwicklungen im Wachstumsbereich Gesundheitstourismus, die herausragende Rolle des Küstentourismus oder auch das Thema Nachhaltigkeit werden genauer untersucht.

Peter Jackson is one of the most acclaimed and influential contemporary film-makers. This is the first book to combine the examination of Jackson's career with an in-depth critical analysis of his films, thus providing readers with the most comprehensive study of the New Zealand film-maker's body of work. The first section of the book concentrates on Jackson's biography, surveying the evolution of his career from the director of cult slapstick movies such as Meet the Feebles (1989) and Braindead (1992) to an entrepreneur responsible for the foundation of companies such as Wingnut Films and Weta Workshop, and finally to producer and director of mega blockbuster projects such as The Lord of the Rings (2001-2003) and The Hobbit (2012-2013). The book further examines Jackson's work at the level of production, reception and textuality, along with key collaborative relationships and significant themes associated with Jackson's films. The examination of Peter Jackson's work and career ties into significant academic debates, including the relationship between national cinema and global Hollywood; the global dispersal of film production; the relationship between film authorship and industrial modes of production; the impact of the creative industries on the construction of national identity; and new developments in film technology.

Within the last decade film-induced tourism has gained increasing attention from academics and the industry alike. While most research has focused on the tourism-inducing effects of film productions, not much has been written about the film location tourists themselves. This book examines the on-site experiences of these tourists by drawing from various disciplines, including geography, sociology and psychology. The author accompanied tourists to film locations from The Lord of the Rings, Star Wars and The Sound of Music and conducted extensive on-site research with them. The results show that only by understanding the needs and wants of film location tourists can film be utilised as a successful and sustainable instrument within strategic destination marketing portfolios.

This report investigates the different marketing techniques used by New Zealand to promote the country via 'The Lord of the Rings'. Furthermore, it reveals and discusses the outcomes of the new strategy.
