Eco Holidays

The Port Douglas Daintree region – Australia’s most tropical region - is also its greenest. As a forward thinking, dynamic region in its approach to sustainable tourism, the Douglas Shire Council and the area’s 12,000 residents have introduced environmental and sustainability practices on a unique scale. Led by local eco-champions, who are Ecotourism Australia certified, and overseen by the Douglas Shire Council, Tourism Port Douglas Daintree and Ecotourism Australia, the region is now on track to become Australia’s first eco-certified region.
