Abstract

This thesis explores how railways, councils and local clubs and associations, state government tourist bureaus and, eventually, the Australian National Travel Association (ANTA), marketed Australia's first mountain resorts - Mount Buffalo and the Blue Mountains. It spans from the 1880s up to the end of the Second World War, when their status as the 'premier resorts' of Australia began to fade as the age of rail gave way to that of the motor car and airliner.
