Luxury Massage Spa Accommodation - South Coast NSW

Over the last few weeks, Christopher and I have begun working on our sustainability project. The area chosen is product development within Health and Wellness Tourism. We are currently in the research phase to gather as much beneficial information that will contribute to the overall success of our project. Not only have I been reading into a vast array of academic journals on Wellness Tourism, but I have also had the fantastic opportunity to meet with well-established academic, Dr Meredith Wray.

Community cooperation Kangaroo Valley - World Responsilbe Tourism Awards 2010

Crystal Creek Meadows has been nominated for the World Responsible Tourism Awards! We are keen to reach the finals because Sophie and I want to be able to show how responsible tourism can help generate prosperity for communities, help conserve heritage and tread more lightly on the planet. And by doing this we help to create great experiences for our guests too!

Lara Claringbould's Blog

A few exciting things have been happening since my last blog entry. I have been involved in helping Chris and the Kangaroo Valley Tourist Association organise a workshop for the Green Kangaroo (which is like a pledge that local businesses sign in agreement to calculate their carbon footprint and do more to be a more sustainable business).

Lara Claringbould - Student Work Experience Diary

Last week Chris arranged for myself and his family to take a trip down to Booderee National Park, home to the large Wreck Bay Aboriginal community, where I was introduced to an aboriginal lady called Julie. Julie was born and grew up there, and makes a living out of doing something very close to her heart; telling aboriginal dream time stories to all interested in hearing them.

Laura's Diary

On Thursday 10th November, to celebrate World Responsible Tourism Day and 2011 being the International Year of Forests, Chris invited a group of year nine students from St John the Evangelist school in Nowra for an educational field trip to the property. The day took a lot of organisation and Chris, Sophie, Max Warren and I all worked hard together in ensuring it was well executed on the day.

For this year’s World Responsible Tourism Day we invited sciences students from St John’s the Evangelist High School in Nowra to come for a field trip and learn about our environmental initiatives. Since it is also the International Year of Forests the focus of the field trip was trees and how we use them on the property. This included conservation planting (which the kids got involved with), study of the firewood plantation, recycled waste water for the citrus orchard, timber for the future conservation of Hampden Bridge, the placing of tree hollows – homes for birds and sugar guilders.

Laura’s Diary – Tourism Student Work Experience

On the weekend of 21-23 October, Kangaroo Valley Folk Festival took place. I thought it would be a brilliant opportunity for me to volunteer and integrate more with the local and extended community. I had a great time and met some important people from the area; I also presented a prize in the bush poetry competition on behalf of Chris and Sophie.
