The way we live in today’s society impacts upon the environment. Everyone can make a difference by minimising the amount of resources consumed, and the amount of waste produced, and learning more about eco tourism. The condition of our land, the purity of our waterways and the quality of the air we breathe are all important factors in our lives. The health of the environment is a gift we leave for future generations.
At Somewhere Unique in the Hunter Valley, we recognise that caring for the environment is directly linked to caring for the overall needs of our guests and the community. We accept the challenge to integrate environmental considerations into all relevant aspects of our eco tourism business. We recognise that it is just as important to care for the environment today, as it is to ensure we continually improve our environmental performance for the future.
Somewhere Unique consists of two one-bedroom self-contained retreats. They are set on a private 20-acre bushland property in the NSW Hunter Valley, taking full advantage of the tranquil setting, natural ventilation, and proximity to native flora and fauna. Our business was the first accommodation property in Hunter Valley Wine Country to achieve EcoTourism certification through Ecotourism Australia. We regularly monitor our carbon footprint, and work to reduce the amount of energy consumed on the property. At the end of each financial year we measure and offset via Greenfleet the greenhouse gas emissions generated by our business activities including; LPG, electricity, business vehicle use, and off-site waste disposal.
We strive to educate our guests and help them to understand and appreciate the natural environment in which we live. Download our Environmental and Sustainability Policy.
