Minimising our Impact
Hiking takes us to the most remote places, allowing us to understand the true beauty of this world. The last thing we want to do is leave a trace, an impact that could ruin the landscape or harm any wildlife. On all tours, Australian Summit Tours follows strict minimal impact procedures to ensure this doesn’t happen. Our guides will educate all guests on our principles and encourage everyone to respect their environment – even taking some key messages home into their everyday life.
7 Leave No Trace Principles
At a minimum, all our tours will follow the 7 Leave No Trace Principles, as outlined by Leave No Trace Australia, to ensure we have no lasting impact on the environment.
Reduce Food Waste
Reduce Plastic Packaging
Any waste generated on the hike is carefully sorted to maximise recycling, minimise landfill and encourage composting where possible.
We’re happy to announce that we’ve partnered with One Tree Planted to plant trees! One Tree Planted is a nonprofit dedicated to global reforestation.
For every tour sold, we will plant one tree in fire affected bushland of NSW!
