A large and popular tourism destination, Australia is also home of a number of programs and labels of eco-tourism that promote eco-tourism, nature tours and green hotels.
A good example is Ecotourism Australia. They have set up their own criteria stated within the Eco Certification Program and they cretify more and more Tourism operators in Australia – that then have their tour, attraction or accommodation accredited under the ECO Certification Program and can genuinely claim to provide authentic ecotourism product.
They also edit a travel guide (see picture) : Ecotourism Australia’s Green Travel Directory launched at Australian Tourism Exchange, May 2007.
The directory lists more than 700 ECO Certified operators, and covers the whole nation.
