Lyn's interests in cultural heritage and tourism developed during the 1970s when she was Assistant Director of the Australian Heritage Commission. In 1985 she moved to the Barossa region of South Australia, and there became directly involved in many aspects of the tourism industry as well as resident associations intent on retaining the history and character of the region. She set up tourism training programs at the Murray Institute of TAFE in 1990 and ran a successful consultancy business in cultural and heritage tourism until taking up a position as Lecturer in Cultural Tourism at Flinders University in 2005. Positions held there include Course Coordinator of Professional Studies and Acting Head of Flinders Humanities Research Institute. Since retirement in 2009 she has adjunct status within the Department of Archaeology.
