Margaret River flaunts its eco-friendly credentials

Margaret River is celebrating World Environment Day as the region has been named as the first ECO destination in Western Australia, and only one of four Australia-wide.

Through this certification program, visitors are assured the region has a range of high-quality nature-based tourism products and a strong commitment to improving sustainable practices into the future.

Driven by the Shire of Augusta Margaret River, and supported by the Margaret River Busselton Tourism Association, 26 businesses across the region are now ECO Certified.

Margaret River Discovery Company, Blackwood River Houseboats, Fair Harvest Permaculture and Tanah Marah are the latest to receive the certification, alongside the likes of the Margaret River Retreat, Margaret River Surf School, Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse, and Jewel, Mammoth and Lake caves.

In addition to this, 68 wineries across the Margaret River region are certified members of Sustainable Wine Growing Australia, with 12% of vineyards certified organic or biodynamic.

As one of only 36 bio-diversity certified hotspots on earth, the south west has thousands of plant species found nowhere else in the world.

Margaret River is promoted as the only wine region in Australia where you can hop from award-winning wineries and restaurants to stunning beaches, tall-timber forests, world-class surf breaks and ancient caves just a three-hour drive from Perth (if the traffic gods are kind).
