Article 1:
Lawton, L.J. and Weaver, D.B., (2016). Resident Perceptions of a Controversial Annual Event, Tourism Travel and Research Association: Advancing Tourism Research Globally, 6, pp.660-682
The article by Lawton and Weaver (2016) is a study on the perceptions of the residents of Gold Coast that has been gathered in context of the controversial annual event of Gold Coast Schoolies Week. The Gold Coast Schoolies Week has been termed as controversial because although it is a mass event of me
iment for the high school-leaving students, cele
ating their completion of school-life with a 7-day long party; however, it draws substantial negative attention due to the high amount of alcoholism and unruly behaviour exhibited in the due course. Hence, the key ideas presented in the article indicate that the perceptions of the residents are partially valid and partially not. Although the purpose of the study has been to research the perceptions of the Gold Coast residents regarding the cele
ation; however, the study opened the route to analysing that the perception of these residents are substantially the influenced ones.
This implies that the perception that they have developed for or against the cele
ation is more influenced by some external factors, rather than neutrally being their own. The applied methodology is a primary quantitative one, implementing online questionnaire administered to 28000 random residents via emails, out of which 880 complete responses could be selected only. The method of cluster analysis applying Ward’s method was done to group supporters and opponents, from which conditional and non-conditionals were categorised. Findings indicated that 33% supported and 34% opposed to the event. However, complexities developed in analysing that those, who opposed, more did so because of being negatively influenced by personal experiences, societal perceptions and media presentation. On the contrary, those, who supported, developed this perception due to their past memories of the event or the enjoyment of their children. Hence, the implications of the findings prove beneficial for Gold Coast as a tourism destination in the sense that if the media covers the event in a balanced light, residents’ perceptions can be improved, thus, attracting huge number of tourists annually to this place.
Article 2:
Raybould, M., Anning, D., Fredline, L. and Ware, D., (2015), U
an beach venues: Vulnerability and sustainability in the face of climate change. International Journal of Event Management Research, 10(1), p.84
The academic paper by Raybould et al. (2015) illustrates a clear picture of the impacts of tourism on the beach area that affects not only the geography of the place, but also its environmental factors. Hence, the key aim of the paper lies in proposing the idea and significance of sustainable tourism so that the beaches such as those of Gold Coast could be preserved as a feasible tourism destination for the future generations. For the purpose of identifying the ways, in which sustainability could be imparted to these beaches, the authors have first, analysed the threats that are occu
ed due to the tourists and their beach activities. As a responsibility to save the beaches and their beauties, the study has been quite an effective one.
The methodology that has been followed for the investigation of the issues is that of a qualitative secondary research. The data sources used were majorly data from the coastal management, research papers; local records from the council, tenders, peer-reviewed journal articles, plans and maps of the coastal areas. From this information, Gold Coast has been specifically studied due to being one of the most commonly visited and crowded beach destinations. The findings of the paper identify 6 strategies, which could be used for not only mitigating the negative impacts of the tourism activities over the beach, but also for extending its sustainability for future tourism. The strategies that could be of key implications to the case study location– Gold Coast, are improving the coastal managerial practices, increasing flexibility of the prevailing beaches, using other recreation spaces that have not been explored much, increasing other tourism sites, improving the communication strategies of the event managers and coast managers, as well as increasing accessibility to the alternative beaches.
Article 3:
Strauss, D., Tomlinson, R. and Hunt, S., (2009), Profile response and dispersion of beach nourishment: Gold Coast, Australia. Journal of Coastal Research, pp.133-137
The paper by Strauss et al. (2009) is an analytical study on the profile responses and distribution of the beach resources that take place at Gold Coast in Australia. It has been found that the increase of tourism activities at the beaches, i
espective of any country, affects them negatively in terms of the losing natural beauty of the place. It has been observed that most of the countries with beaches have maximum of their tourism activities conducted by the sea beaches only. It is so because beaches are always easy to access and can be a massive area for recreation. However, as the paper exhibits, increase of tourist accessibility to the venue has led to erosion of the beach sand. Hence, the key purpose of the paper has been to study the beach profile and analyse their effectiveness so that better strategies could be studied.
In accordance with the requisite of the paper, the authors have followed a primary quantitative research methodology, where the surveys have been conducted of the beach profiles. This has been effectively done to identify the key reasons behind the erosion of the beach sand and to analyse the cu
ent situation. Based on the profiling, it could be identified that the establishment of the Tweed River training walls have restricted the deposition of sea sand to the beaches, which is why it has thinned over time. Besides, natural calamities such as sea storms and tropical cyclones have also affected the volume of the sand on the beaches negatively, as these are quite common in the area. Hence, future monetary implications and better managerial strategies have been suggested by the authors so that the beach maintenance could be sustained. Hence, the findings and recommendations of this paper have been useful for sustaining the sand volume of Gold Coast in future.

, R. and Ho, T., (2004), Economic impacts and benefits of tourism in Australia: a general equili
ium approach, Southport, AU: Cooperative Research Centre for Sustainable Tourism, pp. 2-65.

gchr.com.au/holiday-information/positive-effects-of-gold-coast-tourism/ [Accessed on 18 Apr. 2018]
The non-academic article chosen is a Gold Coast, Holiday Information by Gold Coast, Holiday Rentals (GCHR, 2014). This non-academic source of information has been selected because it is a very elaborate presentation of the positive impacts of tourism that are imposed upon Gold Coast, which is a highly popular tourist destination in Australia. Over the passage of time, the number of footfalls to this place has been increasing a
uptly, thus placing this destination on the world map of tourism. However, there have been controversial points of view on the impact that tourism yields onto this place. As the article imparts, the level of tourism distortion is undeniable to any tourism spot, i
espective of its type and location. However, the purpose of the article has been illustrated very clearly, in the context that the GCHR aims to place Gold Coast on a positive light to the prospective visitors to this place.
The method of presenting the content over the official website of the GCHR has been quite attractive, with the ample depiction of attractive pictures of the place that can easily create interests within the reader of this article. Besides, there have been multiple examples of the benefits of visiting this place as the article also cites statistics supporting the same. The clear justification of the economic benefits that the place derives from the tourism activities has also been a useful one for Gold Coast, as in the future, if the people endeavour to visit the place, they could be easily convinced with the information presented on this site for them.
Article 6:
