Eco Tourism

Kanimbla View offers stylish and comfortable accommodate to our guests with a minimum impact on the environment. Here are some highlights of our approach to responsible tourism.

Land Management
We have entered into a Voluntary Conservation Agreement with NSW’s National Parks & Wildlife Service to co-manage Kanimbla View’s clifftop sanctuary. This VCA will preserve the escarpment and habitat of rare and endangered species like the Glossy Black Cockatoo.

Wildlife Refuge
The National Parks & Wildlife Service has also declared the whole of Kanimbla View a wildlife refuge. You’ll love our birds, frogs, lizards and other wildlife – and understand why we don’t allow pets on the property.

Built Environment
Our buildings – especially the eco-cottages – have been designed, sited and built to minimize their environmental impact. You will see how well they set into the bush. Their interiors are notable for extensive use of natural and recycled materials.

Energy Management
Our cottages are solar-powered. No wonder the Discovery Channel rated us one of the 10 best solar-powered tourism properties in the world.

Waste & Water Management
We make it possible for you to contribute to our extensive recycling and composting program. Water-saving measures include our odourless composting toilets that not only use no water but also minimise our impact on the bush (and allow us to keep our rhododendrons well fertilised!).

Environmental Education
You will find in your accommodation extensive information about Kanimbla View’s environment and Australian flora and fauna generally.
