Comment on Krafty’s call to arms to revitalise tourism industry by Nerys Evans.

Reg Harris and Ted Egan, with different skills, also pioneered the Tourism Way in Alice Springs. In Ted’s case he worked to inform and entertain as the only professional act in town, with no grants or government help. Initiative is always the name of the game. Niche marketing makes it easier and Alice is a Niche of its own.
Hornsby’s winery needs to be mentioned. It was a fantastic enterprise important to tourism and to local social life, but probably too dependent on the difficulties of dealing with a remote Darwin Government.
