Eco resorts in Broome and the North West
Relax and unwind on a resort set among the pristine and untouched Kimberley region.
- Sustainable energy use. Villas are solar powered and self-sustaining. Any excess power is diverted into the resort's grid.
- Eco tents. Tents are designed to ensure maximum air circulation and ventilation, omitting the need for air-conditioning.
- Reduced water consumption. Native plants are used to reduce irrigation needs and recycled wastewater is used to water the grounds. The tents and villas are cleaned every three days and all the showerheads, sink taps and toilets are low flow.
- Low impact on-site activities. Activities are mostly wilderness and culture-based and include nature walks, kayaking, fishing, bird watching and indigenous tours.
- Involved in wildlife conservation. Ramada Eco Beach sponsors and assists the Eco Beach Sea Turtle Monitoring Program, which allows guests to participate in monitoring the local Flatback Turtle population and collects valuable data on nesting turtles.
2. Faraway Bay
Get away from it all at this luxury bush camp nestled on a rocky hilltop with views of the Timor Sea.
- Low-impact design and construction. Resort development included minimal clearing of native vegetation and features plantation-produced timber or local recycled materials where possible.
- Sustainable use of resources. Water is sourced from a natural fresh spring and all firewood is from trees blown over during the off-season.
- Solar powered. Water is solar heated and solar lights illuminate the guest pathways.
- Minimal tourism. Guest numbers are kept small to minimise the impact on the environment.
- Sustainable products. Soaps, shampoo and washing powder are all locally made and biodegradable.
Stay in a deluxe eco tent for an all-natural glamping experience within Karijini National Park.
- Solar powered. Minimal power is provided to the tents for charging of small devices and tents are positioned to allow for natural ventilation in place of air conditioning.
- Recycled materials. The floor is made from composite timber, recycled toilet paper is used on-site and greywater is treated and reused.
- Water usage is restricted. Low-flow showerheads are installed in the showers and spring-loaded taps are used for the hand basins. Rooms are serviced every four days to minimise water needed for laundering linens.
Fall asleep to the sound of the waves on your getaway in Cape Range National Park.
- Close to 100% solar powered. Tents face the ocean and are naturally cooled by coastal breezes, so there is no need for air-conditioning.
- Water management. En-suite bathrooms feature compost toilets and greywater from the hand basins and showers are filtered before using around the grounds. Each guest is allocated 20 litres of water per day to minimise freshwater run-off and a 3-minute shower time policy is encouraged.
- Guest amenities. Soaps are produced locally and are chemical-free and solar lanterns are used along the pathways to guide guests at night. Filtered drinking water is provided to reduce the need for plastic water bottles.
Head to Margaret River for your next wilderness adventure and enjoy luxury sustainably.
- Locally sourced products. The retreat supports Australian tent designers for the glamping and safari tents. Locally produced organic bathroom amenities are provided in rooms and locally grown and gathered ingredients are used at the in-house restaurant.

Where in Western Australia can we find these eco resorts?
What to know before you go to Western Australia
- Use reef-friendly sunscreen or wear a rash guard to block out that harsh Western Australian sun while swimming instead of a chemical-based sunscreen.
- Take along a small bag so you can dispose of any waste while out exploring.
- You are likely to bump into wildlife during a bushwalk or at your lodge. While this can be exciting, do not attempt to go near them, feed them or touch them as this could
- harm their natural habitat or way of life.
Things to avoid when booking eco-accommodation in Western Australia
- Steer clear if a resort doesn't make the details of its green initiatives easily accessible. The best eco resorts are proud to showcase their environmental initiatives, so avoid any that don't at least have an education program.
- Consider whether you need multiple pools and hot tubs, which can be a huge environmental burden.
- A well-built structure eliminates the need for air-conditioning and unnecessary lighting, so unless you really need it, avoid resorts that have air-conditioning.
