Responsible tourism: Tasmania walking holiday, tailor made
Tasmania, as one of the world's last wilderness areas, is a land of National Parks, amazing wildlife and remarkable landscapes. The environment of this state is to be both respected and protected and this is a philisophy that is thoroughly embraced throughout this itinerary, which has been carefully designed to take advantage of Tasmania's natural highlights, whilst ensuring that the impact on the environment remains as minimal as possible.
The four-day Maria Island Walk which features on this itinerary has been carefully selected for the philosophy that underpins it. The basic principles of sustainability - protecting the present for the future by maintaining bio-diversity, reducing environmental degradation and protecting place - have been wholeheartedly embraced in the construction of the semi-permanent tents that feature on the walk and the ethos carried by the enthusiastic local guides that accompany on the walk.
The passion of the local guides on this walk is infectious, whom tie in their expert knowledge of the local flora and fauna which are one of the main features of the four-days, with a generous serving of some of Tasmania's finest local produce throughout. At the end of days one and two you will stay in the purpose built semi-permanent tents, which have been carefully designed to blend in with the local bushland. They utilise composting toilets, and all efforts have been ensured to minimise environmental impact such as the careful use of water usage (no hot showers are on site) and the removal of all waste from the campsite.
A respect for the local environment and wildlife is a core focus of each of the tours, from the Bruny Island day trip, which also takes advantage of specially designed low emission engines on their boats, to the Freycinet Kayaking adventure, the flight over the untouched Southwest National Park and the spectacular day spent wildlife spotting and immersing into the Tasmanian wilderness with Pepperbush Adventures.
The touring that features on this itinerary has also been chosen for their environmental philosophy and the passionate nature of the local guides - all local Tasmanians with a proud interest in the pristine nature of their local environment and the education of the areas that they represent.
