Conservation Policy


We minimise our impact on the environment by using solar panels to power Karijini Eco Retreat, using natural cleaning products to minimise chemicals in the Park, providing hot water bottles instead of heaters, and supplying eco-friendly soap products for guests staying in our deluxe eco tents.

 

Please help us to protect the environment by:

• Respecting the eco-friendly policies of the Retreat by taking short showers and flushing the toilet using the half-flush button

• Keeping the area the way you would like to find it

• Taking your rubbish with you. As this is a National Park, we must ask that you take your rubbish with you on departure and dispose responsibly

 

"Take only memories, leave only footprints."
