EVERYDAY ECOTOURISM HEROES EDITION 9: MARGARET HEFFERNAN
While in movies superheroes command the spotlight, in real life heroes often work behind the scenes. Whether it’s their humility, commitment or diligent focus on creating positive change, normal, everyday heroes – like the ones we’ve been telling you about for the past couple of months – are often the ones who are changing things without you realising it, the ones who encourage and inspire, but in a natural way, because that’s just how they are.
INDIGENOUS TOURISM, A WAY TO BE IMMERSED IN THE CULTURE AND NATURE OF A COUNTRY.
WHAT IS INDIGENOUS TOURISM AND HOW CAN WE WORK WITH INDIGENOUS PEOPLE?
FIVE ISLANDS WITH ECO TOURISM EXPERIENCES YOU MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT
In case you hadn’t realised, the seasons have changed and we’re now officially in autumn in Australia. Whilst in some parts of the country the summer weather is slow to disappear and it may not be too late to get your beach fix, in other parts the cooler days will have you already dreaming of your next summer’s beach escapes. To help you with the dreaming, we thought we’d give you our top five Australian islands you may not have heard about. On each one, you’ll have the chance to enjoy an ECO certified experience (or more), meaning that you can soak up the sun, discover something new and know that your visit is not going to cost the earth… or stop you from returning to your new favourite island in years to come.
