We’re proud to announce that the Shire of Augusta Margaret River has been certified as an ECO Destination – the first in WA and one of four in Australia!
The globally recognised Ecotourism Australia certification process is rigorous and recognises the efforts of the entire community, local government and tourism industry towards all aspects of local sustainability.
The Shire of Augusta Margaret River prides itself on environmental awareness and action. In 2019 the Shire of Augusta Margaret River partnered with community members to deliver a Climate Action Summit at the head of the Margaret River Surf Pro, and following this declared a climate emergency, with a target of net zero emissions by 2030 endorsed in the recent Climate Action Plan.
It’s no secret that our ECO Destination is one of the most pristine and biodiverse environments in the world, we all benefit from the majesty of this place, travellers and locals alike. With this, comes a responsibility to preserve and protect it so that it can be enjoyed for generations to come. This isn’t just a tick in a box, it’s a way of life, an ongoing journey and one we want you to experience when you are here.
Connect deeply, walk softly and experience our generous nature.
