Noosa Everglades and Fraser Island: Eco-Tourism Wonders

With the recent flood in Queensland responsible for property damage, casualties, and a new
environmental awareness, people are now ready to contribute to the betterment of the planet. It
doesn't matter if small or big steps are taken as long as there is a START. And the best way to
start is by taking trips to two of Australia's top eco-tourism sites, the Noosa Everglades and Fraser
Island.

What exactly is Ecotourism?
It is an educational smal scale trip to fragile, pristine, and protected areas. Sites are opened for
several reasons (e.g. for ecological conservation funds, to benefit economic development, and to
politically-empower the local communities). It's also to promote respect of various cultures and
human rights.
Generally, eco-tourism will involve visits to destinations by which flora, fauna, and cultural heritage
are the main attractions. Aside from the sights and sounds, the most important aim of ecotourism
is to educate visitors to the impact of human beings on the environment.
Aside from the evaluation of environmental and cultural factors, eco-tourism also focuses on the
promotion of several integral parts like:

* Recycling
* Energy efficiency
* Water conservation
* Economic opportunities for local communities.

In addition, some of the programs of responsible ecotourism include reducing of the negative
aspects of conventional tourism on the environment and to enhance the cultural integrity of local
people. And to foster a greater appreciation of natural habitats, eco-tourism focuses on
volunteering (voluntourism), personal growth, and environmental responsibility.

Why You Need an Eco Certificate Program
Eco-tourism sites are special, and so you need an Eco Certificate Program in order to visit these
breath taking destinations.

What is the Eco Certification Program?
Developed to address the need to identify genuine nature and ecotourism operators, the ECO
Certification Program is a first in the world. As a result, it is now being exported to the rest of the
world as the International ECO Certification Program.
With the ECO Certification logo in your hands, you will be assisted to site options in order for you
to experience an authentic tour, attraction, cruise or accommodation all environmentally, socially,
and economically sustainable.
The ECO Certification program will assure you certified products backed by a strong and well
managed commitment promoting sustainable practices. The program also provides high quality
nature-based tourism experience.

In Australia, the definition of ecotourism is:
"Ecotourism is ecologically sustainable tourism with a primary focus on experiencing natural areas
that fosters environmental and cultural understanding, appreciation and conservation".

There are 3 levels of ECO Certification to choose from. They include:
1. Nature Tourism - this is in a natural area leaving minimal impact on the environment.
2. Ecotourism - this is tourism in a natural area providing interesting methods in order to learn
about the environment. This is backed by an operator utilizing resources carefully, which then
contributes to the conservation of the environment and helps local communities.
3. Advanced Ecotourism - this is Australia's leading and most innovative ecotourism products,
which provide an opportunity to learn about the environment. The operator is committed to
achieve the best practice when using resources wisely, contributing to environmental conservation
and to help the local communities.

Why Noosa Everglades and Fraser Island are the best locations for eco-tourism?
The magnificent black mirror-like waters of Noosa Everglades and the spectacular panoramic
sights at Fraser Island simply made them the top choices among many of Australia's eco-tourism
destinations. Paddle your way through the lush vegetation on the Noosa Everglades, or choose
among Fraser Island's many scenic treats that will surely captivate the ecological spirit in you.
