Based on prevailing studies and Can-Seng’s research experiences in Denmark, Singapore, Malaysia, China and Australia, this chapter examines fundamental debates on what is sustainable balanced and sensitive tourism development. Authorities, businesses and the communities in all host societies want to have sensitive and sensible tourism development. This often means having widespread consultation, distribute tourism benefits broadly, and maintaining the distinctive character of the place and product. Achieving these goals is easier said than done. The frameworks in this chapter aim to stimulate deeper discussion on tourism development in Tasmania.
