Congratulations to BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort for achieving Ecotourism Certification!
BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort is located in Airlie Beach and offers self-contained holiday cabins as well as camping and caravan sites. The family-owned business is one of Queensland’s leading resort holiday parks with onsite activities for the whole family.
For BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort, preserving and protecting the area’s ecosystems and natural resources is a priority. The resort has an on-site nursery that propagates every plant used throughout the park. You can find plants like neem tress across the resort, a native deterrent for sandflies, as well as numerous flowering tropical trees and shrubs to attract native butterflies and birdlife.
Local residents include wallabies, bandicoots, ducks and green tree frogs and the resort is committed to educating guests on how to not interfere with wildlife, encouraging them to only take photos.
The resort provides a true eco experience by offering a wide variety of eco-friendly activities and accommodation options. Accommodation options range from traditional camping and caravan sites to budget-friendly cabins and luxurious condos.
When in the resort, immerse yourself in gardens with thousands of plants used to create an enchanted tropical wonderland, enjoy enormous outdoor balconies and the brand new waterslide park.
BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort is committed to sustainable practices throughout the management of its business following the ‘reduce, reuse, and recycle’ principle. Its dedication to reducing emissions is accomplished by the use of bikes for transport where possible, electric buggies, low flow shower heads, and a solar roof mounted system on the conference centre and maintenance shed roofs to generate power.
Congratulations again on joining the Ecotourism Australia family!
