Established in 2000, Earth Sanctuary World Nature Centre (“Earth Sanctuary”) has become a Northern Territory leader in the field of eco-tourism by becoming one of Australia’s firs 100% carbon neutral venues. This milestone sets the benchmark for sustainability in the Australian outback with triple bottom line credentials, including Eco Tourism Australia’s Advanced Eco Certification and Eco Tourism Australia’s Highly Commended Award for 2014 and winner of the Northern Territory Brolga Award for Excellence in Sustainable Tourism in 2012 and 2014. Earth Sanctuary’s vision is to become a world leader in sustainable tourism and nature conservation to combat the greatest challenge facing humanity, climate change.
Situated 15 minutes south of Alice Springs, on 100 acres of desert wilderness overlooking the spectacular East MacDonnell Ranges, Earth Sanctuary is a proudly independent, family operated business offering award winning day and evening tours to visitors to the central Australian outback. When the Falzon family (brothers Ben, Dan and Tom and father Joe) established Earth Sanctuary 18 years ago, it was with an ambitious dream to create a living, breathing centre that would showcase ecology, culture and sustainability in action.
