Our hospitality management team researched accessible tourism accommodation as part of its winning brief.
The three learners examined Australia’s disability tourism industry and promoted accessibility as an asset, rather than a compliance, in their presentation.
“We believe that tourism is for everyone.
Our entrepreneurial concept of the Cosmic Hotel will meet the needs and exceed the expectations of a growing market requiring accessible accommodation; and will contribute to the reputation and development of Victoria’s visitor economy.”

Holmesglen Course Leader Laurin Fortune says Katherine, Novera and Reuben used skills they learned during their hospitality management course to support their research.
This included drawing on major studies, such as applied hospitality design, entrepreneurial leadership and contemporary hospitality issues.
“It’s an example of how our Bachelor of Hospitality Management students use their applied research skills to tackle authentic industry problems.
“This team should be very proud of their entrepreneurial project, which puts humans at the centre of their solution, while supporting business prosperity.
“Their win has produced tangible evidence of our graduates’ ability to design and deliver innovative hospitality services.”
