MidCoast offers eco certification support for businesses


MidCoast Council is offering local tourism operators the opportunity to strengthen their appeal to high yielding, environmentally conscious visitor markets by becoming ECO Certified with Ecotourism Australia

“The Barrington Coast region has an abundance of natural assets, and we want to encourage an increase in supply and diversity of sustainable tourism, including eco-accredited accommodation, experiences and products,” Council said in a statement.

Local operators already accredited include Wandha Eco Cottage at Bungwahl and Myall River Camp (pictured) at Hawks Nest.

“We are seeking expressions of interest from local tourism businesses who wish to undertake their eco certification,” Council said.

MidCoast Council confirmed it will reimburse the full amount of the program for up to four local tourism operators. 

“While undertaking the program you will receive coaching calls from Ecotourism Australia and check-ins from the Tourism Industry Development Officer at MidCoast Council.”

The program is delivered through Ecotourism Australia’s online portal and has eight sections to complete.

How to get involved: Complete the Expression Of Interest by 4:30pm Friday 21 June 2024. Council will assess the applications and successful applications will be notified by late June.
