Lyn Leader-Elliot’s specialist expertise is in applying theory from a wide range of disciplines and applying them to sustainable tourism practice.

Lyn’s research interests centre on the links between culture, heritage and tourism. This includes the management and interpretation of cultural heritage in ways that respect heritage values, cultural integrity and community ownership.

From 1990-2000 Lyn ran her own company, Leader-Elliott and Associates Pty Ltd, specializing in sustainable cultural and heritage tourism policy and applied projects. She was a member of the Australian Heritage Commission’s Steering Committee for Successful Tourism in Heritage Places (2001) and developed the Commonwealth-commissioned best practice manual Tourism With Integrity (1999).
