Conservation

Our policy is that Amamoor Lodge will achieve environmental, social and business sustainability for the bed and breakfast and our fifty acre property.  See below for our susainability measures and policies.

Amamoor Lodge near Gympie on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, is a registered Land for Wildlife Property. Land for Wildlife (LFW) is a unique, voluntary program which encourages private land holders to manage land with existing wildlife habitat, and to re-establish habitat through re-vegetation and restoration projects. The LFW program operates with assistance and cooperation of the Federal Government, Greening Australia and local governments.

Amamoor Lodge has approximately 6 ha of good quality remnant rainforest as well as eucalypt forest. Endangered trees can be seen on the rainforest bush walk. Close to 1000 native trees have been planted for a koala corridor to link habitats.

Sustainability

We are committed to restoring and maintaining the natural environment and rural amenity of the Mary Valley and we work with other enterprises in the local community to achieve this goal. We believe caring for our guests and the environment go hand in hand. Our commitment to environmental sustainability is reflected in our policy that Amamoor Lodge will achieve environmental, social and business sustainability for the bed and breakfast and our fifty acre property.

Energy

Amamoor Lodge has been assessed by Earthcheck and our energy use meets or is better than industry best practice.  We employ a wide range of energy-saving measures to reduce energy use.  Measures include sustainable design, appliance selection and use, materials selection and use and day-to-day practices including solar heating, ethanol based fuels, and the use of energy efficient appliances and motion detectors.

Waste

Our waste production has been measured as considerably lower than industry best practice (Earthcheck assessment). We employ several waste-saving measures including purchasing minimal or recyclable packaging products, recycling and mulching and composting of organic waste.

Water

Our water consumption is also better than the industry best practice.  Many water-saving measures are used to reduce water consumption, including water efficient appliances, dual flush toilets, low flow/restrictors on taps and showers, the use of grey water treated and waste water recycled above ground and the collection of reef water in two 10,000 gallon tanks.
 Carbon Footprint
We recognise that carbon emissions are a significant factor in climate change and an important sustainability consideration. We strive to reduce our carbon footprint by sourcing local inputs and directly offsetting carbon emissions through our land management practices.
