Ecotourism in Australia
Every enquiry and booking through GREEN GETAWAYS shows your support for ecotourism in Australia and the environmental initiatives that the accommodation has undertaken.
Our aim is not to make profits, but to promote and encourage ecotourism and sustainable environmental practices in Australian accommodation. We’ve done all the hard yards for you, so you can rest easy that any accommodation you select on Green Getaways is making a genuine effort to minimise its environmental impact.
We search out those unique places where we know you would love to stay: all with high standards, passionate owners and of course, respect for the environment and ecotourism as the key criteria.
Responsible Travel in Australia
Properties listed on GREEN GETAWAYS AUSTRALIA are taking steps towards making tourism accommodation more sustainable, whether water or energy conservation, recycling, or reducing the consumption of natural resources through bulk amenities and eco friendly cleaning.
This means less waste of the world’s precious resources for future generations, as well as cost savings which can be passed on to travellers.
Many of the properties listed on this site are situated in vulnerable areas. We support their efforts to undertake environmental management plans and minimize their impact, while contributing as positively as they can to rehabilitation and landcare programs.
We support responsible tourism by promoting accommodation which provides facilities which enable travellers to minimize energy use, conserve water, recycle and reduce waste.
We believe that all of us have an ethical responsibility to treat all guests and staff, regardless of race, gender or sexual orientation with dignity, with fair wages and respect for worker’s rights. We also prefer to list properties on our site which have full council or government approval for any development, have full insurance and pay appropriate taxes to the Australian Government.
We do our very best to encourage the businesses that we deal with to be as open as possible about their environmental claims. We could all do better, but there is nothing worse than a business overstating their credentials. We don’t accept listings from properties unless they meet our basic criteria and are able to publicly display their environmental initiatives, enabling travellers to judge for themselves, rather than hiding behind a logo or badge. Unfortunately, logo can often mean very little to travellers seeking to find the actual environmental credentials of a property. On this website, each property has an individualised list of their initiatives publicly displayed on their listing page. Just check the green box!
We do our best to maintain the accuracy of the information displayed on this site, but please let us know if there is an environmental issue with any of the properties listed.
