Swell Lodge is privileged to exist inside a National Park, beside a RAMSAR wetland. We're governed by strict environmental regulations and use the latest technology to ensure your stay in the wilderness has minimal impact on this pristine environment.
Each of our 100% solar-powered eco-chalets has a 1.4KW solar array which saves over 750kgs of CO2/yr entering the atmosphere and our efficient, high-output ceiling fans remove the need for air conditioning. We're proud of our solar hot water, modern odourless composting toilet, greywater filter treatment system, ph-neutral bio-degradable soaps, shower gels, teabags and bin liners, and even have crab-safe vehicle attachments and a carbon neutral program realised through 'Greenfeet' planting native trees to offset our vehicle emissions - so you can enjoy your stay at Swell Lodge guilt-free. Sweet Dreams.
Swell Lodge has been awarded Ecotourism Australia's highest level of certification 'Advanced Ecotourism' as well as a 'Climate Action Business' reserved for exemplary operators in terms of our ecological sustainability, natural area management and provision of authentic cultural experiences, a recognition also approved by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC).
Apart from being respectfully led by our trained naturalist guides, our daily activities also include some important eco-lessons.
We like to take guests to the remote Greta Beach - one of our turtle-nesting sites - but one which unfortunately receives a heart-wrenching amount of floating plastic from overseas. Marine debris is a growing, global problem and after what we show you at Greta, you'll never use another plastic straw again.
Our guides will do a beach-cleanup while it sinks in, and you're welcome to help.
