​​​​The Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service (PWS) recognises and values the role of nature-based tourism operators in promoting and encouraging visitors to enjoy and appreciate Tasmania's parks and reserves.  We are committed to working cooperatively with the Tourism Industry Council of Tasmania (TICT) to provide quality visitor experiences that reflect positively on Tasmania's tourism industry while also conserving the values that attract people to the experience in the first place.

The PWS staff work closely with the TICT's Australian Tourism Accreditation Program which is designed to raise professionalism of the industry through implementation of business management practices and standards.

As part of the partnership, businesses with contracts with the PWS and accredited with the TICT will be able to use the PWS Accredited Licensed Operator logo.
