EarthCheck is a highly regarded global program for sustainable travel and tourism which currently operates in over 70 countries. Use of the globally recognised EarthCheck system has provided performance Benchmarks for energy use, Carbon emissions and waste disposal for each of the river cruise, accommodation and restaurant operations. Use of the EarthCheck system ensured that appropriate conversion factors were used and relevant comparisons applied. Advanced ecotourism accreditation is given to “Australia’s leading and most innovative ecotourism products, providing an opportunity to learn about the environment with an operator who is committed to achieving best practice when using resources wisely, contributing to the conservation of the environment and helping local communities.
We are proud to have achieved both of these accreditations for sustainably managed operations. We are committed to creating an eco tourism facility that has zero carbon footprint, and which operates in an ecologically and ethical way. At Corinna, nature is the hero. Our backyard is 65 million year old rainforest, which deserves to be preserved in its natural state.
We aim to provide responsible access to the pristine environment and work closely with partners, Parks and Wildlife Tasmania, to provide walking tracks to reduce human impact on the area (see Walks). The partnership also provides useful interpretation material to help educate visitors about the history, flora and fauna of this globally significant region.
We are committed to working alongside other organisations with responsibilities and interests in preserving the amazing assets in the Tarkine, and particularly in and around Corinna. We want to make them accessible in a controlled way to people who will appreciate them.
Corinna is an authentic eco-tourism destination where the owners have restored and developed the assets with sensitivity. Use of solar power, rain water, eco certified products, commitment to off-site waste removal and recycling, chemical free sewage treatment and non plastic packaging, combine to minimize the human footprint at Corinna. We understand that there is still a way to go and collectively strive to learn from, understand, and protect the unique environment of which we are privileged to be a part.
Visitors should be aware that natural hazards occur within Tasmania’s forest and other natural environments. Corinna Wilderness Experience accepts no liability for injury or damage resulting from such hazards.
