What is Eco Certification

The ECO Certification program assures travellers that certified products are backed by a strong, well-managed commitment to sustainable practices and provides high quality nature-based tourism experiences.

The ECO Certification program is a world first, developed to address the need to identify genuine nature and ecotourism operators. It is divided into three levels:

Nature Tourism

Tourism in natural areas that leaves minimal impact on the environment.

Ecotourism

Tourism in natural areas that focuses on optimal resources use, conservation practices and helping local communities.

Advanced Ecotourism

Tourism with strong interpretation values and a commitment to nature conservation and helping local communities.

Throughout Australia there are many companies certified under this innovative program. Learn more about this program at Ecotourism Australia’s website.
