For the second consecutive year, Australian adventure travel specialist, World Expeditions, has won the Northern Territory Tourism’s prestigious Brolga Award for its Classic Larapinta Trek in Comfort.
World Expeditions won the 2017 Ecotourism award, which is the industry’s highest accolade and recognizes the NT’s best products and services, and qualifies the company to compete in the upcoming national awards.
According to World Expeditions Public Relations Manager, Michele Eckersley, the company is thrilled to be recognised for its ongoing commitment to providing an outstanding trekking experience while minimising the impact on the environment.
“Sustainability has been at the heart of our operations since we pioneered the trek back in 1995,” Michele said. “Our three architecturally designed, semi-permanent campsite facilities incorporate sustainable technologies such as water-free toilets, solar lighting systems and a hybrid grey water disposal system designed for the arid environment,” she said.
“It’s been a huge commitment to deliver the standard of accommodation we do in a remote area, while remaining focussed on complete sustainability,” she said. “and we acknowledge the support of NT Parks and Wildlife and the Indigenous Land Council in receiving this Award.”
The Eco Tourism Award recognises outstanding ecologically sustainable tourism products, with a primary focus on experiencing natural areas that foster environmental and cultural understanding, appreciation and conservation.
The Northern Territory Tourism Brolga Awards are open to tourism operators, industry suppliers and outstanding individuals. Winners of the 2017 Brolga Awards business categories will represent the Northern Territory at the Australian Tourism Awards to be held in Darwin in early 2018.
