The Shire of Omeo is a mountainous area of 560 000 ha in the East Gippsland region of the State of Victoria. Its 1991 population of 2100 persons is forecast to grow to almost 4000 by 2011. This paper will outline a plan for research into sustainable tourism in the context of a rural area that is not yet a prime tourist destination. My orientation to sustainable development is wider than the sustainability of a tourism industry; as a sociologist I am interested in sustainable community.
