​​​​​The 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.

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, nature based tourism operators and businesses who are both accredited with the TICT and hold a business contract with PWS, will be able to use the PWS Accredited Licensed Operator logo which allows our partners to use the special logo in marketing collateral and website promotion.​
