Our sustainable future

Conservation values

Australia’s landscapes are some of the oldest on Earth and having been isolated for 45 million years. We are one of the most biologically unique and diverse countries on Earth, with more than 80% of flora and fauna species endemic to our environments.

The Wild Bush Luxury portfolio offers guests a chance to see some of Australia’s most incredible and pristine environments, almost completely untouched by human settlement. A┬áprime motivation behind what we do is to open the minds of our guests through the activities our guides conduct within these incredible environments. This comes through the interpretation of the environment, the birdlife, and the mammal and reptile life. It also comes through the active debate of topical issues in the environment and through the day to day operation of the camps.

Our experiences are designed to connect our guests with the bush, though we’re acutely aware that this success is reliant on a harmonious relationship with our ecological environment. It is our innate desire and responsibility to ensure we’re contributing to the conservation of Australia’s natural and cultural heritage, including the local communities we work with.

A 4C’s framework

We are committed to driving holistic sustainability, tried and tested using a 4C framework: Conservation, Community, Culture and Commerce.

This framework guides the initiatives employed at Wild Bush Luxury, including the nurture and care for our local flora and fauna, embracing and connecting with the cultures of our experience destinations (both historical and current day), applying intuition and leadership to the needs of our local and guest community, while ensuring our businesses, employees and destinations are thriving as we collaborate for a sustainable future.
