Dr Noah Nielsen PhD(SCU) 
Dr Noah Nielsen is a casual academic and tourism planner. He has significant and varied experience in the field of Aboriginal tourism and have worked in a number of remote and urban Indigenous communities in NSW, WA, QLD and the NT. This experience extends from the practical level of facilitating Aboriginal people in traineeships, business planning and development and regional planning for Aboriginal tourism, and Indigenous Protected Area (IPA) planning through to academic research on issues affecting Aboriginal tourism operators and land managers. These experiences have necessitated working with Aboriginal communities as well as developing and maintaining effective working relationships with other researchers, government organisation and other institutions.
Further, for the past 20 years Dr Nielsen has been involved with teaching and researching at Universities in the areas of sustainable tourism planning, Indigenous tourism, and research methods. In 2010, he was awarded a PhD (Southern Cross University) for a qualitative, action research project on regional Aboriginal tourism planning in Western NSW. Since 2003, he has lectured, tutored and coordinated several units in the School of Business and Tourism and Gnibi College of Indigenous Australian Peoples at Southern Cross University in Lismore.
