Project management | Product development | IMAMS | Regional tourism planning

As developers and operators, we understand risk. We offer to assess the feasibility of projects at varying scales – from a site visit to just ‘kick the dirt’ and express a first impression, to more detailed assessments that often involve:

  • Investigating the nature and scale of demand
  • Assessing the product-market match
  • Identifying or examining forecast development costs and contingency
  • Analysing and proposing mitigative measures for risk as part of due diligence
  • Reviewing operational forecasts and coordinating valuations
  • Making clear, pragmatic recommendations


We coordinate all of our own development feasibility assessment, keeping us fresh and in touch with the latest opportunities and risks. Some examples of our consulting work include:

  • Feasibility Studies for the development of a canopy walk in Victoria’s Otway Forests and ecotourism lodges in the Blue Mountains (Mission Australia), and Barrington Tops (Guesthouse)
  • Market appraisal and feasibility assessment for the adaptive reuse of the Cygnet River garage into a heritage themed restaurant featuring locally grown food
  • Business Plan for Monkey Mia Reserve (Western Australia) for managing a unique dolphin interaction site, ecotourism resort and various ecotour operators
