The well-known Kangaroo Valley bed and breakfast Crystal Creek Meadows has recently been one of the 12 finalists in the World Travel Market Responsible Tourism Awards for 2017. The award ceremony will take place in London on November 8th.
Owned and operated by Chris and Sophie Warren, Crystal Creek brags about four private luxury eco cottages tucked on a scenic 16-acres property located east of the Kangaroo Valley township.
On the World Responsible Tourism Day, the WTM Responsible Tourism Awards will be presented. It targets the contribution of tourism to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals [SDGs], making them predominantly pertinent to all rural tourism in Australia as well as around the world that are going through extreme weather conditions and climate change.
“It is a thrill to be a finalist,” Mr Warren said.
“It’s the first time anyone in accommodation in Australia has got to this level.”
Mr Warren explained that being a finalist illustrates the lengths Shoalhaven businesses and especially tourist operators are also going sustainable and environmentally friendly.
“This demonstrates what we can and are doing in the Shoalhaven,” he said.
“Businesses here can operate to world’s best practices.
“It shows how we are trying to achieve a sustainable future. “This success puts the spotlight on all of us. We are all trying do our best on the South Coast.”
