Featured Research - Binna Burra Case Study
On the 8th of September, 2019, a bushfire destroyed most of the heritage listed buildings at Binna Burra Lodge. This case study was prepared by the Griffith Institute for Tourism based on interviews with key stakeholders in November 2019. The case study aims to document the event to share with tourism and other businesses to inform their disaster preparedness and planning in responding to similar events.
