Advanced Eco Accreditation

Lady Elliot Island Eco Resort and Lady Elliot Island Day Tours were awarded Advanced Eco certification by Ecotourism Australia in 2009. The Lady Elliot Island Eco Resort day to day operations and interpretation program meets the requirements of the Advanced Eco Tourism certification.

The Ecotourism Certification Program is Ecotourism Australia's flagship program. Ecotourism certification is for nature tourism operators and it provides industry, protected area managers, local communities and travellers with an assurance that the certified experience is backed by a commitment to best practice ecological sustainability, natural area management and the provision of quality ecotourism experiences. Developed in Australia in 1996, the Ecotourism certification was the first environmental certification for the tourism industry in the world.
