Sustainable & Responsible
Baillie Lodges has fast established its position as a pre-eminent Australian tourism operator. Integral to this is the setting of new benchmarks for sustainable tourism development and the result is exciting new standards of luxury travel in Australia and the Asia Pacific region.
Environmental commitment is best expressed by the lodge's interaction with its local natural and cultural surroundings.
Capella Lodge management collaborate closely with the Lord Howe Island Board to implement management policies in keeping with the destination’s World Heritage listing. In particular, the Board carefully controls visitation and accommodation of no more than 400 guests is allowed at any one time on the island.
Revegetation of two acres of land surrounding the lodge is ongoing, where endemic species are planted to prevent erosion. Species include Kentia Palms, Hopwood, Sallywood, Melaluca, Juniper, Bulli Bush, Tee Tree, Berry Wood and Goat Wood.
