We are very pleased to announce that 63 of our members and operators have won at least one award in the 2016 State Tourism Awards. Over the last couple of weeks each state has hosted their 2016 National Tourism awards night, selecting one gold winner and in some cases silver and bronze medallists in an array of different categories such as Major Tourist Attractions, Cultural Tourism, Adventure Tourism and last but not least, Ecotourism.
Congratulations to Palace Adventures on Achieving Ecotourism Certification!
Ecotourism Australia wishes good luck to all our certified members who have entered their State’s annual tourism awards. We will be thinking of you and cheering you along as the awards all take place during November. Please ensure you ‘share’ your news and photos with us.

Billabong Sanctuary is delighted to announce the opening of a stunning new semi-arid desert display. The star attraction is a pair of greater bilbies-- giving visitors a rare glimpse into the lives of these endangered marsupials.
The tourism industry is largely dependent on water. Accommodation providers, in particular, depend on large quantities of water to run showers, swimming pools, irrigation systems and so on. Consequently, a medium to large hotel in Australia, for example, uses around 79,000 litres per day, equating roughly to the same amount of water needed to fill 29 Olympic-sized pools each year.
