EcoCentre Travellers Guide Summary

EcoCentre Travellers Guide (Full)


The Travellers’ Guide to Ecocentres was developed by a team made up of researchers, evaluators and practitioners from three established ecocentres in Melbourne: the Port Phillip EcoCentre; Iramoo; and CERES.

The Guide includes:

• inspirational stories to learn from
• key success factors
• warning signs and lessons learned to help you build a viable, effective ecocentre
• tools for you to put into practice
• links to other resources to help you along the way
• the opportunity to consider the lessons learned and tips for success developed by experienced ecocentres
• the opportunity to look ahead at what challenges and opportunities you may face in the future

We welcome any feedback on the guide and your thoughts on future opportunities for networking and support for ecocentres. We wish you well on your ventures.





The EcoCentre acknowledges the Yalukit Willam clan of the Boon Wurrung language group, traditional owners of the land on which we are located. We pay respects to their Elders past and present, and extend that respect to other Aboriginal and elder members of our multicultural community.
We proudly work in partnership with Aunty Carolyn Briggs and the Boon Wurrung Foundation.
