WHAT IS ROC CERTIFICATION?

TiCSA has a partnership with Ecotourism Australia to deliver its Eco Certification programs to our members.

The Respecting Our Culture (ROC) program encourages the tourism industry to operate in ways that respect and reinforce Indigenous cultural heritage and the living cultures of Indigenous communities.

ROC certified tourism operators are committed to protecting cultural
authenticity and integrity, developing sound business practices,
environmental protection and acknowledging Indigenous peoples’ spiritual
connection to the land and water.
