Tulipwood Economics has been working in the Ecotourism space for a number of state governments and private companies. It’s a growing industry in Australia, particularly in Tasmania, but has enormous potential in Tropical North Queensland.

We recently completed a report for the Queensland Government reviewing the Tasmanian success story in ecotourism. And we are currently working with our partners Aurecon and PWC looking at ways to grow ecotourism in the beautiful Whitsundays.

Welcome to Tulipwood Economics

31 July 2018

At the SMART Infrastructure Facility, Joe has been working with Ben Ellis, a highly respected transport economist and Partner at KPMG on identifying representative supply-chains in the Australian economy for the Bureau of Industry Transport and Regional Economics (BITRE). This is a fascinating project and should hopefully, with better information, underpin improvements in supply-chain investment in Australia.

With the appropriate level of fanfare for an economics website, welcome to the Tulipwood Economics website! The purpose of the website is, of course, to promote TWE. The website describes my experience and industry expertise, as well as some of the technical skills I apply in my work.
