National Parks in Australia are recognising the importance of leading by example, with the newly certified Advanced Ecotourism and ROC certified, Murray Valley National Park adding to the existing National Parks certified through Ecotourism Australia.
National Parks must remain competitive with other tourism products and services, and certification provides the quality assurance needed to be equally considered for awards submissions and grant funding. By going through the process of certification National Parks can benchmark their performance against industry best practice standards whilst also demonstrating to ecotourism operators their support for best practice operations in their parks.
Current certified National Parks include:
Buchan Caves Reserve (Advanced Ecotourism + ROC certified)
Blue Mountains National Park (Advanced Ecotourism + ROC certified)
Murray Valley National Park (Advanced Ecotourism + ROC certified)
Mount Buffalo National Park (Advanced Ecotourism + ROC certified)
Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve (Advanced Ecotourism)
Yanchep National Park (ROC certified)
