A good non profit for information about ecotourism in Australia is Ecotourism Australia. They offer an Eco certification program for ecotourism businesses. Their fees for Australian eco lodges-tours certification are high. Every three years they make a visit so it’s a hands on type of certification. Just keep in mind that the smaller Australia Eco Lodges may not be able to afford this type of certification. This is part of the reason we created our Online Eco Rating Exam. Without a 3rd party visit, this is the best way to help fight “green-washing” and yet be affordable for all eco lodges.
The Queensland government has implemented a plan, at the core of which is “Queensland is Australia’s number one ecotourism destination and recognized as a world leader in ecotourism, delivering best practice nature-based experiences that contribute to the conservation of our natural resources and cultural heritage.” The Great Barrier Reef is located off the coast of Queensland in north east Australia.
Australia is one of the flattest and driest countries in the world. It is the sixth largest country but only about ten percent of the country is considered livable.
