As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetRecognised as a Green Travel Leader, Advanced Eco-Accredited Operator and Climate Change Innovator by Eco-Tourism Australia, now we are going even further, taking a regenerative approach to all our business operations to use our tourism business as a force for good to help tackle the current global crises.
Our mission is "conservation through exploration: protecting our planet by inspiring travelers, supporting local communities and boldly influencing the entire travel industry".
Our Director, Hassie, is recognised by Tourism Australia as a Sustainability Hero. From 2008 to 2021 he planted 1.2 hectares of native vegetation on his then property on the Eyre Peninsula.
We partner with many organisations across our regions, such as the Department for Environment & Water (DEW), with our passengers doing koala counts at Mikkira Station as a citizen science project. As well Parks West Australia and FAWNA wildlife rescue in the region.
Throughout 2023, our Regenerative Tourism Specialist has been working on our Regenerative Action Plan and Tourism Manifesto - A co-evolving and living implementation guide for Untamed Escapes, stakeholders and the tourism industry.
This roadmap will act as a journey with opportunities for everyone (nature, communities, suppliers) in the visited destinations, including Margaret River, and provide a greater net positive impact on these stakeholders.
Example of initiatives on our adventure tours;
• All adventure tours have a conservation volunteering activity, i.e., beach clean-ups, tree planting or helping at a wildlife rescue organisation.
• We recycle on tour.
• We organise and provide transport for community clean-ups.
• We educate passengers through our communications on and off tour.
• We purchase locally in the regions we are traveling.
Some of our other environmental practices include:
• Our guides have extensive knowledge of native plants and animals, indigenous culture and eco-tourism and will share this knowledge with our passengers
• We pay a premium for all of our ‘green energy’ electricity produced from renewable sources
Specific to this tour:
* No single-use plastic on tours
* We glamp at the amazing Fair Harvest Permaculture Farm where passengers learn about sustainable living and farming. The farm is 160 hectares of old dairy country in what was once Jarrah/Karri forest. They also have areas set aside for rehabilitation projects and are planting forests.
* On one tour, 12 passengers are able to produce only one supermarket-size bag of rubbish, with all other waste recycled or composted.
* On our hikes, our Guides educate people about native wildlife
* During a half-day hike with a holistic healer on the Cape to Cape Track passengers learn about Indigenous culture and connect with Country.
PeopleFostering Knowledge and Collective Wisdom/Storytelling is one of the five thriving systems in our Regenerative Action Plan.
We engage and share knowledge with our travelers in many ways, both on our tours and pre and post-the core experience. We continuously share the message of regenerative tourism and educate stakeholders, hoping to influence them about sustainable lifestyle choices.
* We use around 30 local Margaret River suppliers on this tour, including Fair Harvest farm, wineries, farmgates, healers, yogi's and attractions, stimulating the local economy.
* We only work with suppliers and venues that have regenerative principles like us.
* We purchase food for the tour in the Margaret River region and always give preference to local fresh produce from farmgates and small local businesses.
* We are giving people the opportunity to reconnect with themselves, Country and others. This tour is packed with day after day of wellness experiences such as yoga, meditation, mindfulness, massage, nature walks and nourishing food giving people the freedom to find themselves. Leading to a happier and healthier global community.
* Passengers participate in a permaculture cooking class, learning about the healing power of organic food.
