Citation: Leader-Elliott, L 2001. Review of "Holiday Business: Tourism in Australia since 1870" by Jim Davidson and Peter Spearritt. 'Journal of the Historical Society of South Australia', vol. 29, 108-110.
Abstract: Tourism, as "Holiday Business" claims ‘is one of Australia’s biggest, most important and most interesting industries’. Davidson and Spearritt aim to ‘draw attention to the broad trends and meanings in tourism’ using a limited number of sites as examples. The authors have written a lively, entertaining history of holiday business (rather than tourism) in parts of Australia. The book is wonderfully illustrated with images of brochures, postcards, posters and photographs, drawn mostly from the authors’ collections. Although "Holiday Business" claims wider territory than is justified by the content it is a valuable and enjoyable addition to the literature on tourism in Australia.
