Abstract Much of the attitudinal research in tourism has concentrated on tourists and host communities. The attitudes of professionals concerned with planning for tourism have been overlooked in the research on attitudes to tourism and its development. This paper examines the attitudes of tourism planners in Australia, hypothesizing that those responsible for the planning of tourism are at the centre of impact assessment. The paper presents some exploratory findings in relation to the attitude systems of a number of subgroups concerned with planning in Australia and, having identified some contradictions in attitudes towards tourism, presents some recommendations for human resource development.
