January 26 has many meanings and we all feel differently about this day.
Many of our First Nations communities experience January 26 as a day of mourning and survival.
As an ally, Wild Adventures Melbourne (WAM) stands in solidarity with our First Nations Peoples in acknowledging that January 26 is not a date to celebrate.
Out of respect we do not operate our tours on this day.
It has been such a privilege to be a part of the creation of the Business for Country program facilitated by Regeneration Projects and the Boonwurrung Land and Sea Council and through this we have commenced our own journey towards deeper cross-cultural connection and understanding.
Really special to be present when this beautiful video by @youngfolksdigital was filmed at a cultural experience at Wonga / Arthurs Seat at the beginning of 2023, to bring together a community of purpose-driven leaders and start the year with reflections and conversations on how we can operate our business with respect for Country.
We encourage you to take time on January 26, and every day, to consider the experiences of Australia’s First Nations community and start a positive conversation in your workplace.

Massive news for WAM, we are now officially a certified B-Corporation!
B-Corp certification is for businesses that have met incredibly high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability with @bcorpanz
From the very origins of WAM, we have set out to deliver tourism differently, and lead by example in a progressive way that has as much of a positive impact on the environment and community as it does on our customers.
It’s a huge achievement for such a small, owner-operator business like WAM so we are really proud of becoming a B-Corp; proud to be one of the few B-Corp tour operators in Australia (alongside operators like @intrepidtravel @rawtravelhikes), proud to join some of the most inspiring brands in the world as a B Corp (including @patagoniaaus), and proud to have gone through the rigorous B-Corp verification process over many months to ensure we meet the comprehensive performance standards and hold ourselves accountable as a force for good.
We are excited to join the B-Corp community and global movement, our commitment as a regenerative tourism business is a continuous process and we can't wait to see what the future holds.
The Mornington Peninsula is such a hub of good people and businesses so awesome to be alongside other amazing B-Corps based in this region including @regen.projects @great_wrap @rawtravelhikes @willandbear @redgumbbq and our friends @zorali across the bay on the Bellarine Peninsula.

Yes we are an eco adventure operator offering epic outdoor activities in nature, but sometimes it’s about stillness, taking a moment to truly immerse yourself into nature.
This breathtaking hidden viewpoint is one of our favourite spots on the #morningtonpeninsula , we climb to the top and spend peaceful chunks of time here thinking and taking a moment.
In fact this location can be found on our self-guided tour: Secret Adventure Picnics on a route we call Rainforests, Roos & Mountain-Top Views’.

The beautiful hill that overlooks us as we paddle is named Arthurs Seat, but we prefer to call it by its Indigenous name ‘Wonga’ as it has been known for thousands of years by the Boon Wurrung people.
Wonga is such a special place, the highest point of the #morningtonpeninsula , technically a mountain as it’s over 300 metres high, we spend so much time exploring the abundance of nature trails, wildlife, and panoramic viewpoints on offer. This is where we call home and we love nothing more than sharing this special place with our guests in a way that respects and protects it.
If you are planning to join an eco adventure with us this summer, as we stand up paddleboard the majestic waters from a white sandy beach adorned with colourful bathing boxes, take a moment to look up at Wonga and marvel in her beauty.
Let’s face it, they are not going to remember the socks 🧦 you give them for Christmas 🎄, so instead gift an incredible eco adventure into nature 🍃 that will create lifelong memories with a WAM Gift Card.
Better still, our gift cards are valid for 3 years and can be redeemed against any of our guides and self-guided adventures.

A portion from every sale also goes to the WAM 4 Project to support koala 🐨 conservation @mp_koalas on the #morningtonpeninsula and reef restoration 🐬 in Port Phillip Bay @nature_aus...
With over 200 vineyards, and 50 cellar doors, a visit to the #MorningtonPeninsula wouldn’t be complete without a visit to a beautiful winery. Our full day eco adventure ‘Peninsula Paddle Pinot & Pools’, takes you to our favourite which is just the 👌🏼 vibe:, named after a surf break, chilled, welcoming, stunning and delicious 🍷
We love everything about this place from the ocean inspired artwork, sustainable practices, to the laid back and fun atmosphere, and can’t wait to show all our WAM guests over the summer.

We have a new and improved coastal bushwalking experience this summer on the @officialmorningtonpeninsula ; one you won’t of heard of, one where you probably won’t see another soul on the nature trails, one where when the tides are right you’ll be able to bathe in an infinity natural rock pool all to yourself, one where you’ll probably be making the first footprints on the day on a secluded beach only accessible by foot.
WAM is about taking your off the beaten track, to hidden gems that only locals know which feel like you are going back in time.
Add that to the other iconic moments we include one our day tours like #standuppaddleboarding , tasting incredible local produce, bathing at the @peninsulahotsprings, and you have yourself the perfect day out you’ll never forget.

We are honoured that WAM has been featured as one of Tourism Australia’s Sustainability Storytellers alongside other truly inspirational tourism products and people in Australia.
“WAM’s business ethos is ‘make no compromise’ on sustainable choices: every decision, partnership, purchase and destination has to satisfy the criteria of significantly benefitting the client, the local community and the environment”
For us the problem wasn’t going to be creating epic eco adventures on the stunning #morningtonpeninsula it was looking at all the other negative impacts tourism can cause and how we can find solutions to them in the way WAM operates…
❓How do we operate at zero waste
❓How can we be climate positive
❓How do we leave each place we visit cleaner than we found it
❓How do we support long term conservation and regeneration on the Mornington Peninsula
❓How can we support small local conscious businesses
❓How can we be respectful and supportive of First Nations businesses and culture
❓How can we operate our back of house as ethically as possible (home office, cleaning vehicle etc)
❓How can we proactively support community
As a regenerative tourism business we are constantly evolving, improving and finding further solutions to be a force for good. Just by joining an adventure with WAM our guests can be safe in the knowledge that they are also giving back.
You can read about the other Sustainability Storytellers on the Tourism Australia sustainable tourism page.
There are many reasons why you have to visit the Mornington Peninsula, in Victoria, Australia but if there is one thing you NEED to do, it's experience a WAM Eco Adventure. Join our awe-inspiring small group adventures for a day full of wonder, adventure, relaxation and the very best local produce.
