The Lodge was originally built on a portion of a farmed and cleared 34 hectare parcel of land adjoining the Daintree National Park. For the past 25 years this land has been regenerated and replanted back to the original rainforest habitat. Therefore our ‘Eco-Certified -Advanced Ecotourism’ status has a solid sustainability foundation due to this reforestation of the land the Lodge occupies.
For the past 15 years our Eco Resort Australia has followed its documented Integrated Environmental Management System (IEMS). The first principle of the system is that the long term effect of the Lodge on the local environment must be zero. The Lodge has its own Sewerage Treatment Plant which is of a standard consistent with World Heritage guidelines. Grey water from the accommodation houses and main lodge including the Healing Waters Spa passes through grease traps and then on to our treatment plant. This treatment plant is an open topped packed steel system with a clarification step as well as aerators and sodium illuminate with a final sand filter used to reduce phosphorus. The final effluent emitted out into the grounds and surrounding forest is of a specification near tertiary standard.
All water from the Lodge is drawn from the Mossman River and is treated on site with a sand filter and chlorination plant with the result being a pure minimally treated spring water of a high standard.
Operationally the Lodge further adheres to sustainability of the environment with the following practices:
Rainforest Rescue uses donations from individuals and organizations to purchase logged and farmed land around the Daintree area near Cape Tribulation and replanting it with native rainforest vegetation.
At the resort, our carbon offset initiative involves making a monetary donation to Rainforest Rescue for each guest visiting the Lodge as well as using Rainforest Rescue tree planting gift vouchers for our VIP guests.
And we aim to help minimize the carbon footprint created by each individual guest visiting our Lodge.
