Douglas Shire Council and the destination Port Douglas & Daintree were awarded Ecotourism level certification after successfully completing 90% of the internationally recognised Green Destinations standard for sustainable tourism. This comes only a year after the Council was awarded a Nature level certification with 80% of the completed criteria. While the destination is kicking goals in working towards sustainable practices, also the tourism industry has done their part. This year two different tourism operators in Douglas Shire joined the Ecotourism Australia’s Hall of Fame. The Daintree River Cruise Centre and Sailaway were recognised for being ECO certified for 20 years. The certification is internationally recognised and shows the operators' commitment to deliver quality tourism experiences that care for the environment we live in.
