Tourism Optimisation Management Model (TOMM)

TOURISM IS A KEY CONTRIBUTOR TO ECONOMIC GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT ON KANGAROO ISLAND.

The Tourism Optimisation Management Model (TOMM) was developed to monitor the effect of tourism on Kangaroo Island from a variety of perspectives (including environmental, economic, socio-cultural and visitor experience) in the interests of both residents and visitors.

The model is a community based initiative responsible for monitoring and managing the long term sustainability of tourism on the Island. The initiative is overseen by a Management Committee with support and representatives from the community, industry and Government agencies.

At the core of TOMM is a practical set of indicators that monitor tourism on Kangaroo Island. These indicators measure changes in the economic, environmental, socio cultural and experiential environments.

  • can be a start-up business, but must be delivering a product/service to visitors,
  • can be a not-for-profit - such as a conservation group or progress association is included,
  • can be delivering wider facilities and services, not just a 'product', such as walking trails or visitor information servicing

Ineligible activities - those already being fully supported through other sources, or that are already funded on an ongoing basis by other Australian, state or territory, or local government programs.
