Academic fieldwork plays a crucial role in scientific advancement, knowledge production, and research training. However, the current investigations into fieldwork often focus on conduct, methods, and techniques, leaving the experience of solo female tourism fieldworkers largely under-explored. Drawing new connections between the intersections of liminality and gender in tourism fieldwork contexts, this study adopts a duo-ethnographic methodology and uses visual memorywork to explore the experiences and evaluate the effects of entering liminal tourism spaces on female scholars conducting solo fieldwork in remote Australia. The study contributes to theoretical advancements in gender studies, reflexivity, liminality, and transformative experiences research. Furthermore, the paper also provides practical implications for institutions and researchers engaged in remote tourism fieldwork.
