INTERACTIVE CONSERVATION projects, immersive cultural experiences and eco-certified operators are now just a click away.
The Tropical North Queensland Sustainable Travel Hub was launched last week, enabling people to travel with greater purpose in the only destination where two World Heritage areas meet.
“Consumers are increasingly concerned about the impact of climate change which has resulted in people travelling more thoughtfully and with more intent,” said Mark Olsen, CEO Tourism Tropical North Queensland (TTNQ).
“The Tropical North Queensland Sustainable Travel Hub will help travellers to understand the value our region places on the environment and our community through various resources including blogs and a destination video that highlights our promise for greater good.”
Mr Olsen said his organisation was also promoting a Pathway to Sustainable Tourism Toolkit to help operators adopt sustainable business practices, measure their footprint and plan their journey forward.
“The toolkit outlines certification programs, community initiatives to partner with including Rainforest Rescue and Green Caffeen and discusses Tourism Tropical North Queensland’s sustainability journey which includes working with Reforest to offset events.”
