Gecko Canoeing has taken out the Ecotourism category in the 2010 Ecotourism Australia Gecko Awards. Presented at the Global Eco Gala Dinner in Noosa last night, the awards are in recognition of the “best of the best” in Australian eco accredited product.
“There are four categories in the annual awards,” said Ecotourism Australia CEO Ms Kym Cheatham. “The ecotourism category is a particularly competitive category which recognises ecologically sustainable tourism product with a primary focus on experiencing Australia’s natural areas while fostering environmental and cultural understanding, appreciation and conservation. Gecko Canoeing is an outstanding example of excellence in its field”.
“Gecko Canoeing first started in the early 1990's as a genuine Eco-experience with an emphasis on guest experience and quality adventures in remote areas”, said owner of Gecko Canoeing Mick Jerram. “Our main focus continues to be on the Tropical Savannah River Systems, beginning with the magnificent and accessible Katherine/Flora/Daly System. We are one of the longest existing Ecotourism Australia accredited products and we continue to provide one of the truly authentic products in this region”.
Gecko Canoeing also offers guided bushwalks on the famous Jatbula Trail from Nitmiluk Gorge to Edith Falls, the Dreaming Place Trek from the Manyallaluk Aboriginal Community through the Eva Valley to Nitmiluk Gorge, as well the Kakadu walk from Koolpin Gorge to Twin Falls. Gecko Canoeing also has access to other remote Aboriginal areas, and caters for bushwalking & 4 wheel driving tours with the ability to link with other Savannah Guide Operators.
