Tanja Lagoon Camp
South Coast NSW

Tanja Lagoon Camp is based on social, cultural and environmental responsibility. Inspiration comes from the desire to live and care for the beautiful land and provide opportunities for others to connect with the earth. They commit to their product being a force for good.

They have a strong focus on environmental initiatives such as investing in the planting of over seven thousand native trees to revegetate the natural environment encouraging the return of native birds and wildlife. They have also invested in hybrid work vehicles to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. 

Tanja Lagoon Camp is run on solar and battery power and they have accessible accommodation and communal spaces. They also have local green supplier and purchasing policies, sustainable design structures, rain water conservation practices, and a worm farm waste management system that processes all sewage. They have also committed to only work with international travel agents who are offsetting the carbon emissions from their guests’ international flights.
