The Green Wally project will be an ongoing evolution however we have now completed a lot of the major works on our journey to becoming the “Greenest Lodge in the World”.
On the Wallaby Lodge now provides visitors with a unique opportunity to experience first-hand how careful design and practices can allow us to generate and store our own power, and to save water with a variety of water saving devices including a grey water system. Throughout the property, visitors will find a series of low-key interpretive opportunities to help learn through signage and interactive displays about the conservation and energy generating systems in use. We also encourage guests to pick fresh herbs from our edible gardens and to soak up the homely atmosphere.

Other organisations making a difference are :
T.R.E.A.T Trees for the Evelyn and Atherton Tablelands (TREAT) was started in 1982 by botanist Joan Wright and rainforest ecologist Geoff Tracey, who recognised the need for a community-based tree planting organisation to revegetate degraded lands and create corridors for wildlife on the Tablelands. TREAT has wonderful working relationships with the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service – Restoration Services – at the Lake Eacham Nursery, many landholders, other landcare and community groups.
Rainforest Rescue has been protecting and restoring rainforests in Australia and internationally since 1998. They do this by purchasing properties of high conservation value rainforest and protecting their biodiversity.
Rainforest Reserves‘ mission is to care for injured and orphaned cassowaries to help return them back to the Wild. Our aim is also to help reverse the Extinction crisis which faces Cassowaries by restoring rainforest for Cassowaries and their friends, through planting and maintenance.
