Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

Ecotourism experiences are primarily about visiting natural areas and using ecotourism products where possible. We ensure that the majority of each visitor’s time is spent in nature. Criteria have been designed to guide ecotourism operators in providing the best nature experiences that Australia has to offer and the careful visitation of protected areas by small groups is encouraged.

The core to providing an ecotourism experience is ensuring that the operation is environmentally sustainable and that staff are environmentally aware at all times. We adopt environmentally friendly practices and communicate our environmental commitment. Types of measures include careful planning as to the use of energy & water and promotion of sustainable (eco-labelled) accommodation where possible.

Interpretation is a key component of any ecotourism experience and our interpretation is well researched, visual, fun and interactive. Specific measures have been designed which focus on all our clients experiences by targeting interpretation towards individuals and groups. The provision of newsletters to past and future customers is also encouraged, as is social interaction between different groups of tourists.

When you travel with us you will be helping to reduce rubbish and pollution from our country, land, sea and waterways. We promote minimal impact walking, as well as we encourage everyone to carry out their rubbish and pick up any rubbish left by others. With water we realise this is a precious commodity. We encourage recycling where it is practical and make sure our clients know how precious it is and we encourage them not to not waste it. In our office we recycle our water as well as all waste products. We have a worm farm that turns all our water and waste products back into water which we can use on our garden to produce healthy home grown produce, and so the cycle continues. We also have a self sufficient solar electricity system that produces more power than we need, putting green power back into the grid. We encourage be green, read on the screen so as to reduce paper. This overall helps to save the trees thus helping the environment. In the office everything is recycled from, plastics to ink cartridges. Walk with an eco certified Company that enjoys what this planet has to offer and wants to make sure the generations to come can enjoy as well.

People

An essential part of being an ecotourism operator is that the business is actively contributing towards conservation, and a number of measures have been included to make this happen.

Our contribution ranges from participating in litter clean up days and contributing to the installation of bio-degradable toilets as well as focusing on biodiversity and conservation.

We support local businesses by utilising locally owned and run accommodation and restaurants in Rosebud, Portsea, Cape Schanck, Arthurs Seat and Point Nepean.

We employ local guides and drivers. As we are a small company, in some areas the guiding is done by Phil and I, the owners of the company. All guides undergo our comprehensive training program and this is tailored to each individual’s needs. It covers areas such as safety, first aid, group management, minimal impact techniques, environmental interpretation, cultural considerations.

We as Ecotourism operators are also encouraged to become actively involved with conservation organisations and the other groups that look after the tracks.

Ecotourism is about creating benefits for the local communities. Operators are encouraged to support local employment, especially in relation to the hiring of local guides. Where possible we support those involved in farming local and organic food, producing local arts and crafts and running rural pubs and restaurants especially those that support ecotourism development in their region.

We support local adventures that help create a better environment in the National Parks, so as we can preserve and protect our natural environment and the wildlife that exists within it.
