    Huon Bush Retreats, just south from Hobart Tasmania, scores pretty well on every one of the points in this article.
    1: As a private habitat reserve, HBR doesn’t just minimise impacts, it has rehabilitated damaged land to native habitat.
    2: Future travel and eco-protection are protected by conservation covenants in perpetuity. These limit tourism expansion and mandate ongoing protection.
    3: Sustainable features assessed by Green Globe. HBR outperforms best practice on every measured criteria. Aboriginal Tasmanians are acknowledged as the traditional owners and have shared a couple of their stories in the interpretive panels along the walking tracks. Wildlife is protected and lives without cages.
    4: Eco-guilt is not an issue as the heating, water and solar electric are carbon neutral. The small amount of fossil fuels are vastly offset by carbon intake making HBR 3800 tonnes per year carbon positive (yes, positive)
    5: Bringing it all together as a package; Relax, explore and experience nature in an extensive carbon positive habitat reserve.
