Certificate of Excellence
GreenLeaders Gold level
Broken River Mountain Resort, in the cool mountain tranquillity of Eungella National Park, is both a retreat from Queensland’s tropical heat and the world’s best location to see platypus in the wild, and it is more than just a unique wildlife experience. With exceptional cuisine from an acclaimed chef, and a choice of lodge or studio accommodation, it offers you a unique high life experience as well. An eco-resort where you can take a self drive 4WD excursion in the morning, a romantic stroll through the rainforest in the afternoon, see platypus feeding at sunset, and enjoy absolutely brilliant cuisine every night. How cool is that? Eco Tourism is ecologically sustainable tourism with a primary focus on experiencing natural areas that foster environmental and cultural understanding, appreciation and conservation.
