What is Ecotourism?

To gain an understanding of ecotourism the definition is “Ecotourism is ecologically sustainable tourism with a primary focus on experiencing natural areas that fosters environmental and cultural understanding, appreciation and conservation.”

The advantage of ecotourism is preservation, preservation of environment and culture and by looking after and preserving these things Australia can remain beautiful and generations to come can also enjoy the immense natural beauty that we have the chance to experience.

Travelwild Australia is a company that is eco certified which means that it participates in ecotourism to ensure that every customer can enjoy there tour as much as the last one and so that we can preserve Australia the natural way.

Our Impact

Because we participates in ecotourism it is important that we try and reduce our impact on the environment but not just leaving campsites as they were found but by trying to combat climate change.

By choosing to go on a tour with us you are doing great things for the environment by travelling together with other people and reducing emissions.

Most nights the bush camps are accompanied by a small fire that doesn’t use too much wood or produce too much smoke.

We avoid using noisy generators and use a small lamp powered off of the car battery as this is much less damaging.

These are a couple of the things that make sure we keep the environment clean and give back a little bit.
