nightfall camp is  carbon-neutral sustainable holiday accommodation which gives back to its Queensland environment,  minimising daily-emissions to achieve a zero-carbon footprint.  At the end of  its first year of operation,  the camp will  be among only a handful of tourism operators in the world who submit to independent emissions auditing to confirm carbon-neutral status.
