We are proud to be a member of Ecotourism Australia and all our tours are certified Advanced Ecotours.
We support local environmental groups, participate in local environmental awareness forums (particularly in relation to tourism) & have taken interested parties to areas threatened by clear-fell logging.
All our guides are trained in “minimal impact” techniques, have a good knowledge of local flora & fauna, and are trained in Remote Area First Aid Techniques.
For our trips, we use a local butcher and “Veggie Shed”, and we include Tasmanian produce such as cheese and wine. As far as practicable, we purchase fuel close to our camp sites or hikes & stop in remote community shops to give our clients the opportunity to purchase souvenirs or other goods. In this way we are able to show our appreciation to the local community, and we provide clients with information on the local environment & history.
All our brochures are printed on recycled paper and we encourage clients to recycle brochures or pass them on (this is printed our brochures).
You can trust responsibletravel.com reviews because, unlike many other schemes, reviews can ONLY be written by people who we have verified have been on the holidays. In addition, we don't run these holidays ourselves - our only interest is giving you the best independent advice.
