This chapter reports on the findings of research undertaken in 2002 to investigate the impacts of three major crises on firms servicing Australia's tourism industry. These crises, which occurred in 2001, include the failure of the HIH Insurance Company, the World Trade Center terrorist attacks, and the collapse of Ansett Airlines. Factors that either moderated or exacerbated the effects of these crises are identified together with the short- and medium-term responses made by participating organizations. Other aspects investigated include the broader operating environment, the nature of organizational learning that had taken place and a comparison of the events of 2001 with other 'crises' experienced by the industry.
