Cradle Mountain walking holiday in Tasmania, self guided

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.

Environment

We donate money to various charities including the Epworth Hospital, the drought relief fund and the Prime Ministers 1000 steps. They use volunteers to help keep the track in tip-top condition. Our office is environmentally friendly with double glazing, solar panels, evaporative cooling, green power. We adopt a reduce, reuse then recycle policy wherever possible.

Minimal impact walking: We lead by example and encourage others to follow. We believe that we are doing our job well when our customers leave a tour having had a fabulous, fun-filled holiday but also come away with a broader appreciation of and respect for the natural environment. Ideally, they come to walk and leave as ambassadors for the environment. We stay on formed tracks, avoid trampling vegetation, insist that all rubbish is carried out, and pick up rubbish left by others. Group sizes on self-guided trips are usually only two. On group-guided trips, the maximum size is 15 but there are two guides so we can split into smaller parties, limiting our impact.

We encourage people to only take photos of plants and animals, they must look after the environment wherever possible. We plan our walks to utilize toilets wherever possible and if not available, we provide clear instructions on burying waste and carrying out any sanitary items. We view wildlife from a distance and never feed native animals. We do not light fires in the bush and we do not allow people to smoke on walks. Our motto is “Leave nothing but footprints, take nothing but photos and a piece of someone else’s rubbish”.

We are Advanced Eco-certified.

Community

On this tour, we employ local drivers, use local accommdation and food providers.

On our trips, we stay in comfortable local accommodation properties with lots of character. Each one has been personally selected by the owners. We stay at 4 star luxurious country motels. When we use motels, we look for small, family-run places in attractive locations.
Good food is an important aspect of all our trips. Meals are plentiful, nutritious, wholesome and, wherever possible, offer local ingredients or specialties. No matter which holiday you choose, the accommodation and meals will add an interesting local flavour to your experience. We use local restaurants and encourage clients to stay longer and make the most of the area and what it has to offer. We recommend that our clients do one of the day trips that this area has to offer, like visit the caves or experience the wineries.

Wherever possible, we incorporate quality local tourism experiences into our walking holidays. Examples include bush tucker walks with indigenous people. On this walk, we incorporate local attractions and tours en route such as a boat cruise and an option of exploring the limestone caves. This helps the local community, the grass roots of tourism. Money going to where it is most needed.
