This working paper aims to examine how clustering may be utilized as a means of achieving sustainability in holiday homes. This is in line with the gap identified in the literature on how sustainability could be achieved in small accommodation establishments. To achieve the study’s objective, the research will focus on holiday homes in the Alexandrina region in South Australia. In the initial stage, in-depth interviews with holiday home owners will be conducted to identify their perceptions about their responsibility in contributing to a sustainable tourism industry. The findings will inform the next stage of data collection on how clustering could be used by holiday home owners to achieve sustainable tourism. Considering the continued growth of holiday home ownership and their significance to tourism development, it is hoped the findings of this research would support Local Government Agencies (LGAs) in their agenda for local tourism strategies.
