The Environment & Lillydale Farm Holidays

At Lillydale, we are committed to conserving the natural environment and raising awareness of environvental issues, particularly issues which affect our property, such as soil degradation and water conservation.

Lillydale is Advanced Ecotourism accredited. Protecting the natural environment refers to many factors and we try to embrace all of these aspects, including: 

We regularly consult with traditional landowners and government departments in relation to minimising the impact of our activities on the natural environment.

We currently employ best practice principles for our accommodation and activities through many innovations including:

We encourage our guests to raise their awareness of environmental concerns through their personal efforts in water conservation, conserving electricity and collecting their rubbish.

We aim to show you an appreciation of our natural environment through our guided activities and raise your awareness of ecological issues.

Learn what you can do to help lower your carbon footprint by visiting the Climate Smart website.

We also encourage you to sponsor a tree on the property to assist in the construction of our Koala Corridor and to help offset emissions created when you drive or fly to visit us.

We also regularly plant trees throughout the property to reduce carbon, soil erosion and to regenerate the native species.

This can be a lasting reminder of your stay and a way to assist in conserving the natural environment and providing food sources and habitats for Australian native animals.

This little koala is typical of what we regularly spot in the trees lining our driveway outside the cabin.

We are very encouraged to see that trees planted only 16 years ago are already having such a positive impact.

We are continually monitoring and updating our operations to ensure that our guests receive a quality experience which is ecologically sustainable.

We welcome you to participate in this process by providing your feedback about your experience. Please enquire at the Office about this process.

We also support Ecotourism organisations which offer guests an opportunity to experience our natural areas in a way that fosters environmental and cultural understanding, appreciation and conservation.

We encourage you to visit the website for Eco Tourism Australia at to learn more about these organisations.

Eco Cabin

Our 5 star environmentally rated two bedroom cabin is now completed.

Environmentally friendly and sustainable products were used throughout the cabin, which offers privacy and is a great place to relax and unwind.

For more information on how you can become environmentally responsible please visit the Tourism Queensland website.
