Our Philosophy

Achieving a better and more sustainable future for all.

At Northern Escape Collection, we are passionate about reducing our impact on the environment and making a positive one on the community. We believe that turning a profit and supporting these two areas can go hand-in-hand.

Sustainability lies at the core of who we are as a business and we focus our efforts on achieving a better and more sustainable future for all.

Across all Northern Escape Collection properties, we are continuously expanding our efforts to tackle key sustainability issues by focusing on the areas where we think we can have the most impact.

Energy usage, water and waste management and climate change

  • We work to eradicate harmful species and replant lost plant species at Orpheus Island Lodge.
  • We use eWater as a cleaning product instead of harsh cleaning chemicals.
  • Orpheus Island Lodge and Mt Mulligan Lodge both have a high proportion of energy supplied by solar-power with battery storage. A backup generator is used on standby only.
  • Solar hot water is used to service all guest accommodation at Orpheus Island Lodge and Mt Mulligan Lodge.
  • Northern Escape Collection provides the opportunity for guests to offset the carbon emissions of their helicopter flights to Orpheus Island Lodge and Mt Mulligan Lodge.

Community engagement and philanthropy

  • Where possible, our properties work with local suppliers in the Queensland region to source local, organic, free range, fair trade, biodynamic and sustainably farmed produce and products
  • We are a supporter of the local economy, working with local suppliers on activities offered to our guests
  • We support Rainforest Rescue’s successful reforestation of old cane farming land at the Nightwings property in the Daintree Rainforest since 2015. The project has been successful in reducing runoff into the Great Barrier Reef with this year’s testing repeating last year’s zero sedimentation reading.
