Golden Nugget Discovery Tours gains Global Approval for Ecotourism Tours
2015-09-22Ecotourism Australia’s ECO Certification gains Global Approval Ecotourism Australia’s ECO certification program has been Approved by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC), as one of the first tourism certification programs in the world to meet the compliance requirements of the GSTC Approval Manual. Golden Nugget Discovery Tours has 2 tours of Daylesford/Hepburn Springs & Spa Region that are Ecotourism Certified; a. Daylesford & Castlemaine Discovery Tour, and b. Goldfields Track Walks. Why go with the rest when you can GO WITH THE BEST The acceptance of ECO certification as a GSTC Approved standard builds on the ECO certified tour operators’ deserved reputation for delivering high quality, sustainable best practice, tourism experiences that have true conservation benefits. This level of excellence was evident at the recent Australian Tourism Exchange (ATE) where 20% of all sellers were ECO certified, and at the National Tourism Awards where a third of all winners were ECO certified, and over 40% of all finalists were ECO certified. Travelers choosing products that are certified by Ecotourism Australia can be assured that those products are deemed sustainable according to the highest international standards." “GSTC Approval status brings further credibility to a well-respected and established brand, ECO certification, and raises its profile in the global arena. International guests can now recognise and choose with confidence high quality tour operators delivering true ecotourism experiences. In global terms Australia is a small market with a range of internally relevant brands. Attaining the GSTC Approved status allows ECO certified tour operators to proudly display the GSTC branding, instantly placing them in the global marketplace with a brand that is recognised and respected” said Rod Hillman – CEO of Ecotourism Australia.
