To share memorable experiences within the unique natural environments surrounding Byron Bay to give visitors a greater understanding and appreciation for the region's natural wonders.


We want to create awareness of the challenges facing the forest and its native wildlife and contribute towards restoring and protecting the rainforest by giving back to local regeneration organisations.


We are committed to consistently improving our environmental footprint, including leaving no trace at destinations and finding innovative ways to reduce carbon emissions.  


We're planting trees on your behalf

We have partnered with local not-for-profit Reforest Now to ensure that future generations can continue to be inspired by the ancient Big Scrub Rainforest. Each booking with Earthbound Tours will plant a tree to expand the existing rainforest remnants, providing homes for endangered wildlife and clean water and fresh air for the community.
