Responsible tourism: Melbourne to Adelaide 3 day tour, Australia
This 3 day tour takes in the Great Ocean Road, the Coonawarra wine region and then continues by road to Adelaide. This is a great way to see an extremely diverse region full of significant Australian natural icons and landscapes. South Australia has been protected from many diseases and pests that attack and potentially kill fruit including grapes. We firmly adhere to the law that requires that people traveling into South Australia from Victoria discard any fruit they are carrying at the border.
Melbourne and Adelaide are quite close as far as Australian cities go. This provides the best opportunity in Australia to travel between cities by a coastal road, a destination in itself, without the need to 'turn off' the road to visit the tourist sites. If people intend on visiting both Melbourne and Adelaide our tour provides the ability of using comfortable afficient vehicles rather than air travel to relocate. This will reduce your environmental impact and amount to a significant saving of carbon emissions especially if they intend on doing a Great Ocean Road tour then returning to Melbourne to fly out to Adelaide.
Our commitment to the protection and sustainability of this touring region is emphasised by our continued support of businesses that can improve the quality of experience for our customers without sacrificing sustainable practices. To help them keep up their high performance levels we do not take people into the region in the busiest periods when the region is already stressed. While the input of revenue is always appreciated there are business practices that we have instilled to optimise our relationships with our suppliers. Regarding accommodation, we do not stay on Friday and Saturday nights when demand is high and availability is low. By doing so, we can secure enough villas at the same property so that everyone is staying together. It also provides work and revenue for our accommodation and catering partners in less busy times. Our clientele is mainly international which means we bring business to our partners that they may have missed otherwise and can organise our departure days to have a positive impact on the community.
