This chapter considers the emerging issues of Australian Antarctic tourism, through a critique of its legal and policy approach. An introduction of Australia's legal and policy framework precedes the analysis of increasing tourism activity, technological developments and land-based tourism facilities. This is followed by an examination of non-members of the International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators (IAATO) operating tourism companies or vessels from Third Party States. The chapter concludes with an outline of how Australia can adopt suitable legal and policy directions for tourism within the ATS.
