Australia’s Top 5 Eco Resorts

Luxury and Love of the Planet!

Staying in eco-friendly resorts is no longer bathing in grey-water and using drop toilets. It is a clever combination of luxury, love of the planet, along with education on eco-friendly and sustainable lifestyles which not only enhances the stay but we can all take home the knowledge to improve our own environmental impact!

The hotel sector accounts for around 1% of global emissions and though this may seem small, growth in the sector means that the sector will increase its negative environmental impacts if it does not start to measure and reduce its carbon emissions.* So how can we go on a holiday, or travel the globe, without adding to the already out of control negative impact on the environment? You can visit and support those properties who are making a very conscious effort to reduce their environmental impact. Easy!


Here are 5 properties that are paving the way in eco-tourism:

1. Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley, NSW
