Skytrek Willow Springs Station Achieve Nature Tourism Certification

Nature Tourism CertifiedCongratulations to Skytrek Willow Springs Station for achieving Nature Tourism certification!

Willow Springs Station is a typical working sheep station in the Flinders Ranges that offers true bush hospitality and quiet, secluded settings. They offer private and comfortable accommodation for small or large groups, and bush campsites with amenities. In addition to their accommodation offering, Willow Springs also offer 4WDing on the popular Skytrek, Guided 4WD tours on and off the property, and marked walking trails.

The Reynolds family have been operating the Station, and now the ecotourism destination, since the mid-1900’s. They strive to educate their guests on sustainability, and encourage them to reduce their carbon footprint, while offering a unique and genuine bush experience. The Reynolds family also work closely with the Ecosystems Management Understanding Program (EMU), a South Australian initiative to gain greater awareness of ecosystem components and linkages, and take a holistic approach to property management beyond the property boundary, that is improving production, environmental and social outcomes. Check out the video below, which highlights their efforts with the EMU program.
