The Australian Trade and Investment Commission highlights that environmentally friendly travel experiences are becoming more popular.
Over 70% of travellers say they will work harder to travel sustainably in 2023, a 10% increase from 2021 data.
“Sustainable tourism minimises negative impacts on the environment and local communities while promoting responsible and ethical travel practices. Embracing sustainability ensures that the world’s most beautiful and unique destinations remain accessible and unspoiled for the next generations,” says funding expert Olivia Jones of Ask Funding.
4WD tours are increasingly popular for off-road escapades, offering breathtaking vistas, remote destinations, and an immersive experience with nature.
