ItemCommunity heritage interpretation games: A case study from Angaston, South Australia(Routledge, 2003-05)The residents of Angaston in South Australia, have worked on interpreting their town’s history since the early 1990s. Heritage walks brochures and interpretive plaques attracted, and continue to attract, steady interest from adults interested in history. An attempt to broaden the audience base to include children and ‘younger people’ in general, led to the development of an interpretive game designed as a choose-your-own adventure and intended for conversion to CD as a computer game. Although the town had an interpretation plan and keen local historians, the project ultimately shed its historical base and became a cartoon-like ‘choose your own adventure’ game which did not attract its intended market. This case study demonstrates the difficulty of achieving heritage interpretation with integrity when working within the complex dynamics of a small community. Some strategies to assist community-based interpretation projects are suggested. ItemIndigenous Cultural Tourism as part of the Birdsville/Strezlecki experience.(AIATSIS, 2002) Leader-Elliott, Lynette FrancesThis paper examines some issues relating to inclusion of Australian Indigenous cultural heritage in a recent heritage tourism study carried out along the Birdsville and Strzelecki Tracks in South Australia and Queensland. Tourism surveys show low levels of perception of 'Aboriginality' linked to the outback, possibly connected to the poor representation of Indigenous cultural association with the study region in tourist literature as well as on the ground. Legislative and administrative considerations led to the omission of Indigenous heritage from the heritage tourism study which was required to concentrate on post-non-Indigenous-settlement historic heritage. The report recommended that the Indigenous story be told where appropriate, and that this be based on consultation with Indigenous communities to identify places suitable for interpretation so that a layered understanding of peoples and place could be developed.
