Trees for Tourism is an environmental sustainability initiative by Tourism Noosa in partnership with Noosa Landcare.

Noosa’s environment is one of the main reasons why visitors from all over the world choose to holiday in our region. This program provides an opportunity for locals and visitors to give back to the region and it’s valuable and unique environment.

Noosa’s major events play a vital role in Trees for Tourism, by donating $1 for every paying event participant to the program and its projects. One of these projects is the Noosa Trail Network rehabilitation initiative which plants shade trees for walkers on the trail network, assists with erosion remediation and mitigation and improves the habitat for local wildlife, including koalas.

Many tourism businesses in Noosa contribute to Trees for Tourism and regularly donate a proportion of their profits at local industry events.

Despite this not being an official carbon-offset program, it is estimated that one tree planted from Trees for Tourism on average will sequester 124kg of CO2 over its lifetime (an average car produces approximately 180kg of CO2 per 100km).

To date, Trees for Tourism’s 6,459+ trees will remove approximately 801 tonnes of C02!
