Aussie tourism needs to capitalise on mining
Advisory firm PriceWaterhouseCoopers says while the mining industry is hurting tourism, the sector needs to capitalise on the boom if it wants to survive.
A new report by PwC said the mining industry had clogged up rural accommodation, raised prices, and made it hard for tourism providers to attract low-skilled labour.
But the report said many of miningâ€™s unwelcome impact would be â€œhere to stayâ€ and the industry needed to change instead of wait for mining to turn down.
