By achieving Nature Tourism Certification, Tea Tree Hollow has demonstrated that they are leading the way as an operator in terms of sustainability and provision of authentic, high-quality nature-based tourism experiences. Antonia Stephenson and Andrew Stephenson, owners of Tea Tree Hollow, are passionate about providing an eco-friendly experience to visitors by preserving and improving the biodiversity of this 40 acres property. The purposely built compact house helps to leave a small physical and carbon footprint to preserve the pristine condition of the property which also ensures a healthy ecosystem in return. Their efforts in safeguarding a healthy ecosystem have become a success as hundreds of species of flora and fauna are flourishing within the property.
An off-grid solar power system with battery storage, a 58,000l rainwater tank to harvest rainwater from the roof, LED lighting, furniture built from up-cycled pallets where possible and a re-forestation programme within the property are just a few among many significant initiatives the owners of this property have taken to be sustainable in their business.
We congratulate Tea Tree Hollow for achieving ECO certification at the Nature Tourism level and hope this will be an inspiration to continue their best practices.
