Australia holidays, tailor made
Excellent with a lot of variety. All memorable, but perhaps going to Uluru and spending a week in Sydney over Christmas and new Year (more)Jan Baker
This is a fabulous place with great food and service. Lizzie and Shayne are so knowledgeable and passionate, it is really inspiring. We were surrounded by wildlife. We had breakfast with kangaroos grazing right in front of the window...It was brilliant, I wish I could do it all again. (more)Diane Bushell
From £5395 including UK flights
Uluru and the Olgas tour in Australia
Memorable parts? The tour of Kata Tjuta - Ben the guide's knowledge and experience was simply wonderful. I've never met someone who could talk with such knowledge about geology, widlife, country lore. Tips? Camping was a bit basic but a wonderful experience - cooking over an open fire under a clear unpolluted night sky was simply ethereal. Local benefits? Yes. (more)Farida Parkyn
From £312 - £415 excluding flights
Great Ocean Walk holiday in Victoria, Australia
Memorable parts? The first two days of the Great Ocean Walk; also the Atherton tablelands stay. Tips? Do some research into precisely what's offered on each trip - the Red Centre tour wasn't exactly what was predicted. Local benefits? Yes, except for Red Centre tour, which relied a lot on Aboriginal culture and settings, but seemed to involve no indigenous people. Overall rating? Very good. (more)Anne Owers
From AU $2495 - AU $2795 excluding flights
Kangaroo Island luxury lodge, Australia
Memorable parts? Walking into the lodge is like walking into the something from a James Bond set - and I mean that in the best possible way! The views from the main room pretty much are a show stopper - vast circular glass windows show off wilderness on every side. In front the majestic Southern Ocean, behind just wild bush as far as the eye can see... The rooms are very private, and look our directly onto the Ocean - we watched a big lightning storm come in as if we were all alone in... (more)Justin Francis
From AU $990 - AU $1800 per person per night
Bibbulmun Track walking holiday in Western Australia
Memorable parts? Our guide, Dave, was extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of the the countrside - birds, plants, weather, history - he helped us enjoy the spectacular lanscape. Tips? Just come with your eyes and mind open. Local benefits? Yes - this was an integral part of the operator's ethos. Overall rating? Excellent - just what we were looking for. (more)Kathy Hammond
From AU $1995 excluding flights
Kimberley holidays in Western Australia
Memorable parts? Camping under the stars in Purnalulu National Park under the most amazing sky I have ever seen and being woken by dingoes howling and calling to each other in early morning. The wildflowers were everywhere. It was an amazing time to travel. Tips? Make sure you are fit enough to do all the walks so you can get the most out of it. Some require a good level of fitness and scrambling over rocks and boulders. Take good walking boots/shoes. Be prepared to rise early 5.00am.... (more)Wendy Muller
From AU $2290 excluding flights
Mission Beach backpackers accommodation
Most memorable was just sitting on the balcony in the sunshine with a coffee and a book and looking across the Coral Sea...and waking up to the sounds of the forest...and seeing several cassowary... and eating in the beautiful restaurant. (more)Nigel Evers
The most memorable part of my holiday was a day trip snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef - so beautiful and so addictive - I just wanted to keep searching for different corals and fish. (more)Imogen Howlett
We loved every minute of our stay! Our rainforest cabin was truly beautiful with polished wood floors, a comfy bed and best of all a stunning view onto some near pristine rainforest... This is ecotourism at its best. (more)Claire Morgan
From AU $33 - AU $65 per double room per night
Uluru & Kings Canyon holiday
Memorable parts? Meeting the traveling group and getting to know their travel history and sharing ours. Also, sunset at Uluru was fantastic. Tips? Consider a day before and after this trip in Alice Springs. Local benefits? Somewhat. There wasn't much interaction with the aboriginals as expected. The food preparation and camping was good for the environment. Overall rating? Great - first trip with this operator and set a great tone with us for consideration for future...

From £428 - £535 excluding flights
Kangaroo Island tours, 3 days 2 nights
Kangaroo Island was a very pleasant surprise. We enjoyed getting down close to a very windy and wild Southern Ocean, and walking on the beach at Sea Bay up close with the sea lions was a real highlight. But then again so was watching Koalas in the trees, and a walk out to the Remarkable rocks (these really are pretty remarkable when you get up close - the hardest granite you could possibly imagine smoothed like butter into strange shape over millions of years by the wind). We bought some of... (more)Justin Francis
From AU $2609 - AU $3725 excluding flights
Flinders Ranges wilderness tours, South Australia
Memorable parts? The Flinders is a very dramatic park and one that invites you get out and walk. Wilpena Pound is a rock fortress, a piece of land enclosed of each side by high cliffs with just one route in. Inside their are lovely walks through huge gums - its a very tranquil and relaxing place. Staying at Rawnsley Park, a working Merino Sheep Station, was a real treat. We stayed in one of the Eco Villas, and the highlight was lying in bed and pushing a button that withdrew a blind... (more)Justin Francis
From AU $495 - AU $1475 excluding flights
Adelaide to Alice Springs tour, Australia
Memorable parts? The wonderful walks -- canyons, gorges, other natural features -- that revealed to us the natural riches of the Outback, from birds and other creatures to the land itself. Also... the bush knowledge and sensitivity of our leader, Steve. He added immeasurably to our appreciation, and therefore our pleasure. Tips? Probably more important for Europeans than Canadians or Americans (who live in big-scale countries): realize emotionally, not just intellectually, that once... (more)Penny Williams
From AU $2450 - AU $2495 excluding flights
Tasmania West coast tour
I am finally getting around to thinking about sending you some feedback on our trip. In general terms, we book tours in order to access places we wouldn’t get to ourselves and so that we get loads of enriching information about the places. I guess we were disappointed on both points. I think the only place we would have struggled to get to on the trip was Corinna and the lake camp on the last night. We could have got to the other places easily. Mick was especially disappointed that the only... (more)Lorrie Marchington

To celebrate this landmark decision that put Tasmania on the eco-tourism map, Tourism Tasmania (in association with responsibletravel.com) is inviting travellers to explore the diverse natural wilderness with a unique iPhone app that showcases the best that Tassie has to offer.
