Positive Conservation


Echidna Walkabout’s driving principle is positive conservation. We believe people protect what they know, and what they love.

So we set out to create a style of tourism that not only minimizes negative effects on the environment, but positively creates a sense of wonder, an understanding, a power to change for the better.

Which is why every one of our tours has a conservation action. By choosing one of these tour you will help nature while you enjoy it.
