Responsible tourism: Tasmania east coast camping & walking tour

Environment

We are proud to be a member of Ecotourism Australia and all our tours are certified Advanced Ecotours. Select tours are part of Green Guardians a program run by Parks and Wildlife Tasmanian that gets tour participants to assist with a variety of in the field projects

All our guides are trained in “minimal impact” techniques and we have a dedicated minimal impact policy available on our website. Our guides have a good knowledge of local flora & fauna and are happy to share this knowledge with our visitors. There are reference books available in the vehicles for use by clients.

All our brochures are printed on recycled paper and we encourage clients to recycle brochures or pass them on (this is printed our brochures). Future publications will use plant based inks if possible and include QR codes on brochures to enable smart phones to link to our website hopefully reducing the number of brochures needed

Community

I believe it is first necessary to reflect on the history and shape of our community before I address how we support it

"We acknowledge that there are conflicting interests to be found in Tasmanian places. Likewise, there are contested land use practices throughout the State and indeed Australia. It is especially so for some of the places we visit. We firmly believe that the resolutions to conflicts and solutions to these problems can only come from open communication rather than the culture of division and dispute that has become entrenched in parts of our communities.

Specifically we would like to acknowledge and recognise the following:
1) The Traditional Owners of the places we visit and their ancestors; their wisdom and traditional knowledge systems; and the ways in which they have used the land sustainably for thousands of years
2) The significance of the early European settlement to the economy of Tasmanian, albeit that the legacies of colonisation are still with us and are in need of resolution. It often goes unacknowledged that colonial settlement in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s is the foundation of Tasmania’s economy until today.
3) The pioneers of the green groups and environment movements that were born in Tasmania and then grew to international significance. They challenged the exploitive notions seeded in colonial thinking. While colonial development may have been seen as a necessity of its time, changing the ways we understand and relate to places and how we exploit recourses within them now are needed

Supporting my community in our operations is achieved by using local suppliers and foods where possible and asking them to support local producers in turn . We believe in sharing the benefits to communities we pass through and ensure that we purchase fuel and food in some of the smaller towns along our routes. We also leave time for clients to shop for responsibly sourced souvenirs and personal items where appropriate

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The most exciting part was wild camping at Trial Harbour.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


The tour guide is very accommodating to the traveller's needs and interests, so I would suggest building up a dialogue with him about the holiday plans.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Definitely ....the tour guide was genuinely sympathetic to the environment and took care to reduce environmental impact and also educate the traveller about the local wild life and environment.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


The holiday was fantastic and I would recommend using this company wholeheartedly. The equipment was excellent, the food was substantial and healthy. The activities were well planned and tailored to the needs of the group. Aran , the tour guide , was well informed and so enthusiastic about his surroundings that you couldn't help but be in awe of the areas we travelled through. He was attentive and very helpful. On our trip there was a problem due to the floods on the east coast and fire damage on the west coast.
Aran was very flexible and created a trip that gave us a broad overview of Tasmania, so we felt we had got a great understanding of the variety of the country .
