Abstract Tourism is an industry of growing economic importance to both Australia and China. The Chinese tourism industry will recruit one million tourism personnel over the next 10 years (Jiang & Tribe, 2009). This study examines tourism curricula by comparing higher education tourism courses in Australia with those offered in China in order to highlight differences in design, approach and outcomes. Analysis of these tourism curricula indicates that courses offered by Australian universities have a strong tourism focus, with business as a sub theme, whilst Chinese courses are business focussed, with tourism included as an addition. © Journal of Hospitality, Leisure, Sport and Tourism Education.
