Abstract: In this paper we discuss the growth of modem tourism, and its perspectives and implications in an overall frame. We focus on environmental implementations such as the paradigm of sustainable conservation of St. Phillip Island in Australia. Additionally some economic perspectives provide an overview of sustainable tourism development and its dynamics for the next few years. Notional aspects of mass tourism, sustainability, carrying capacity are provided for an integrated sustainable tourism assumption approach. Sustainability, for tourism as for other industries, has three interconnected aspects: environmental, socio¬cultural, and economic. Sustainability implies permanence, so sustainable tourism includes optimum use of resources, minimization of ecological, cultural and social impacts; and maximization of benefits to conservation and local communities. In conclusion we summarize that potential dimension to make tourism a form of Sustainable Development, by practising Governmental Legislation and its applicable concepts, in a few years should be viewed as a part of larger policy framework designed, to be achieved a sustainable society.
