Australians going green, but not forgoing luxury | The Insight Files | Scoop.it

Australian travellers might be among the most eco-conscious travellers in the world, but they’re not quite ready to give up their spas and service. Sustainable and culturally responsible tourism is fast becoming a priority for Australian travellers, with research showing that together with America, Australia is among the world's top sustainable travellers. Booking.com has revealed that more than half of global travellers in 2015 claimed they were likely to choose a destination based on its social or environmental impact. In a survey of 32,000 travellers across 16 countries, ecologically responsible travel is growing in leaps and bounds as a key part of travel, especially compared to the mere 10% of respondents who had taken a sustainable trip in 2014.
