Taking sustainable tourism one step further, Aussie owned and B-Corp certified tour operator, Wild Adventures Melbourne (WAM), has created a game changing day tour that blends outdoor adventure with hands-on positive impact experiences.


Aptly named The Positive Impact Adventure, this innovative day tour, created in collaboration with NatureBoss.com.au, aims to empower tour-goers. The idea is to help guests make a difference on the adventure day, whilst equipping them with the skills and knowledge to continue their good deeds into the future.

WAM Founder Nic Cooper explains, ‘From its origins, WAM has been a business for good, but I wanted to take this a step further and design the ultimate day of positive impact and adventure. Simply put, this day has the potential to be life-changing’.

This makes sense, considering WAM already operates tours with sub zero waste and donates at least 5% of its revenue to good causes across Australia.


Where’s the tour and what’s included?

Taking place south of Melbourne on Wadawurrung Country, the fully guided tour will weave outdoor adventure experiences with positive impact activities. Participants will get the chance to learn from leaders in purpose-driven areas whilst exploring this beautiful region of Australia.

Some tour highlights include:

  • Welcome to Country and smoking ceremony, led by a Wadawurrung Elder at the Mt Rothwell Conservation and Research Reserve
  • Guided bushwalk of the largest feral predator-free ecosystem in Victoria
  • Visit to Common Ground Project for an immersive hands-on time in the regenerative farm
  • Lunch by the talented team at Staying Grounded Program which works with women from asylum seeker and immigrant communities
  • Plastic pollution workshop with the teams from Sea All Dolphin Swims and SOEL (Southern Ocean Environmental Link)
  • Snorkelling and swimming with seals, rays, and other marine life with the potential to spot dolphins
