A future beacon for eco-tourism excellence

The masterplan for Ella Bay will set a new standard for eco-tourism, with a view to creating a community that is both environmentally and socially self-sufficient.

Plans include a cassowary research and education centre where guests can immerse themselves in the ecology of the region, while the establishment of environmental reserves and a wildlife corridor will ensure visitors, flora, and fauna can coexist in harmony.
