5 Must Do Eco Tours in Queensland Australia
In this day and age, the only thing as appealing as cost effective tours is consumer-conscious tours. Though it’s easy to invest in the idea of making ‘green’ choices, how do we know that the services we’re investing in are actually making efforts to reduce their impact on the planet?
We understand that as conscious travellers, you want to be picky about where you spend – for the very best experiences, and most eco-friendly! That’s why we’ve put together a list of Queensland tour operators that are environmentally responsible.
Be sure to look out for the ECO-Tourism Certificate, which indicates operators that provide high quality nature-based tourism experiences!
Offering world class sailing adventures, these guys operate in one of the most stunning nature reserves of the world – The Whitsunday Islands. Their vessels are eco or advanced eco accredited, so you know that their tours are committed to preservation and respect of the marine parks they show you.
The team at 1770 Castaway maintains their eco-conscious experiences by running tours with minimal numbers. This also means you get to admire the beautiful Eurimbula National Park in a more intimate setting, and treat the island with the respect it deserves!
Boasting over 27 years experience with marine mammals, these guys know how to operate in a conscious way. The only tour operator of its kind in Hervey Bay, Blue Dolphin’s multi lingual crew will provide you with an informative experience with dolphins and whales.
Mumma Bear had environmental sustainability in mind when devising every aspect of Drop Bear’s tours. They take their responsibility to protect K’gari seriously, and in doing so encourage conscious consuming in others. Their equipment and household products are reused, recycled and free from harsh chemicals. Not to mention, their properties are run entirely off of solar power, so you can have an easy night’s sleep on your tour of a lifetime!
Connection to the natural environment is a highlight of all Kayaking Tours of the stunning Noosa Everglades. Partnered with The Noosa Biosphere Limited, Kanu Kapers are passionate about the environment in which they operate.
