Ecotourism Australia is the peak national body for the ecotourism industry. It was formed in 1991 as a not-for-profit organisation and has significantly contributed to long term environmental sustainability on a national and global level through its ground breaking and world class ECO, EcoGuide, ROC and Climate Action Certification programs.
“To inspire environmentally sustainable and culturally responsible tourism”
What is green travel?
Green travel, ecotourism, sustainable tourism and responsible travel are all names that are used to explain travel which helps protect the natural and cultural environment of the places visited.
The potential negative effects of tourism are both local and global and taking a green approach to travel is an easy way to protect the amazing places visited, while also providing a more rewarding, authentic travel experience, inspiring greater connections with people and places.
Contrary to common belief, you don’t necessarily have to pay more in order to travel green.
