With the world-renowned Great Barrier Reef on one side and Ningaloo Reef on the other, Australia is a top destination for exploring the underwater world. But Queensland and Western Australia are not the only destinations where you can see beautiful corals in Australia.
The tourism industry is constantly evolving and whilst we recognise the need for operators to implement responsible practices, it is also important for travellers to minimise their carbon footprint and to travel responsibly. The packing and planning process of a holiday is an exciting time, but sustainability considerations are often not front of mind. By implementing a few of these easy ideas, you’ll be able to travel more cheaply, more easily and with less of an impact on the places you visit.
Congratulations to Epic Ocean Adventures on achieving Nature Tourism certification for their Kayaking Tours, Stand up Paddle Lessons, Surf Lessons and Kitesurfing lessons!
