It’s a long weekend in Australia, and whilst some of you might be heading to our nation’s azure waters to escape the sizzling temperatures of the past few weeks, others will prefer to stay indoors and enjoy the coolness of a beloved and gently humming air-conditioner.
Congratulations to Outback Elite Tours on achieving Ecotourism Certification for their East and West MacDonnell Ranges Day Tours, Chambers Pillar and Rainbow Valley Conservation Park Day Tour, Fink River National Park and Hermannsburg Day Tour and Uluru and Kata-Tjuta and Kings Canyon National Park 3 Day Tour.
Australia is renowned for its spectacular and unique natural environment. Although we’ve got beautiful beaches and good surf breaks, there is so much more to experience beyond that!
When talking about everyday ecotourism heroes, it’s hard to go past someone like Dr Ronda Green. Owner/operator of Advanced Ecotourism Certified, Green Travel Leader, Araucaria Ecotours and Chair of Wildlife Tourism Australia, Ronda has been living and breathing ecotourism longer than many people have even been using the word.
When you hear the word ‘hero,’ what’s the first thing that springs to mind?
Congratulations to Sydney Harbour Boat Tours on achieving Ecotourism Certification for their Icons, Bays and Beaches Tour and Private Charters.
If you’ve travelled anywhere in Australia, it’s likely you’ve come across the ECO Certified tourism logo. Close to 500 tourism businesses – tour companies, accommodations and attractions – proudly display this logo on their windows, their vessels and their uniforms. But do you know what it signifies? Have you perhaps even thought that it’s probably just a marketing ploy; something aimed to attract “eco conscious” travellers?
