Towns in Australia's Northern Territory should consider homeless indigenous people as tourists, which could help create business and soften people’s attitudes towards them, a population and tourism researcher has said. Charles Darwin University’s Dr Andrew Taylor has studied the mobility and migration of indigenous people in Australia and said there could be up to 12,000 indigenous people travelling at any one time across the Outback. He said there was no quality data to say how many people were homeless every day in Darwin but he had seen “estimates” ranging from 5500 to a few hundred. He said focusing on this marginalised group’s contributions to society as tourists could improve relationships between the visitors and locals.
