Abstract This paper describes the process by which the Desert Knowledge Cooperative Researcg Centre (DK-CRC) has established its tourism research directions. It provides an overview of steps involved while undertaking the process of setting tourism research priorities, including a literature review and a scoping workshop. It also discusses the rationale for the choice of research investments directed towards desert tourism made by the DK-CRC in the context of broad research developments. It is recognised that the knowledge development required to enhance the livelihood of Australian desert inhabitants through tourism is disparate, fragmented and dispersed. This means that expertise needs to be borrowed and that some DK-CRC research interests are likely to be overlapping with those of other organisations. Research priorities need to be established by considering carefully areas of comparative advantage for the DK-CRC tourism research as well as strategic areas for collaboration in tourism reserach based on idenifiable synergies and complementarity in capabilities.
