Originally trained as an environmental scientist, Tony Charters went on to specialise in protected area planning (at Masters’ level) and protected area management, specialising in nature-based recreation and World Heritage Area Management. For the past 20 years Tony has been closely involved with leading edge projects that have pushed the boundaries of protected area management and tourism – with outstanding results.


Tony has many years experience in natural resource and tourism planning and management in both the public and private sectors. In particular, he has a background in nature-based recreation and ecotourism developments. Tony was Director of the Brisbane Forest Park Authority - Australia’s first integrated nature-based recreation authority. He was Secretary of the Queensland Recreation Areas Management Board and also the start-up Executive of the Wet Tropics Management Authority. Tony left the public sector in 1991 to take up the position of Director of Environmental Management for Kingfisher Bay Resort and Village on Fraser Island for 5 years to 1995.
