Lizard Island Off The Great Barrier Reef Includes Enduroplank™ in Amazing View

“As the northern most resort on the Great Barrier Reef, and a luxury lodge of Australia, Lizard Island is truly secluded from the rest of the world. This is just one wonderful Lizard Island fact that makes it like nowhere else.” Lizard Island in Cairns, QLD prides themselves on their private beaches and exceptional views on the reef. Back in 2013, Lizard Island wanted to replace an old timber boardwalk that had looked a but tired and old. What better to install on this spectacular island than a Replas recycled plastic boardwalk, made with Enduroplank™. This new boardwalk is nearly 70 metres in length and was constructed using a composite fibre structure.

Using recycled plastic not only keeps this pristine island in such beauty, but ensures the boardwalk will be around for a longtime.

Check out Lizard Island just here, and see the absolute beauty that Replas product is included on!

With the removal of dangerous trees and the new planting of eucalyptus trees will make the park “restored to its original use as a well-facilitated rest area and one of the region’s valued heritage sites.” And the best part of all? Recycled plastic has made its first appearance in Wyllie with an installation of nearly 120 brown brolga bollards from Replas.

Stunning Views at Katherine Gorge in Nitmiluk National Park with Enduroplank™ Decking

Make your way to the sandstone area of Nitmiluk National Park and explore all thirteen stunning gorges. The local tour guide will take you down the gorge by boat and along the way you will travel across several Replas Enduroplank™ boardwalks. What makes this material being recycled plastic so special is the fact that its is submerged under water for three months of the year during the wet season. The product has been down for over seven years now and still has no signs of wear and tear, a great product for this harsh environment. When asked, the tour operators said the recycled plastic product Enduroplank™ decking was excellent, since it wasn’t slippery – which many tourist regularly comment. There are a total of four Enduroplank™ decking boardwalks throughout the park.

You’ll be drawn to the majestic beauty and sheer size of the spectacular Nitmiluk Gorge. Located on the lands of the Jawoyn people, rock art sites dot the park and dreaming stories bring the silent gorge walls to life. You can learn about the Jawoyn people’s association with the land at the Nitmiluk Centre or by taking a boat cruise of the first few gorges. Take sunrise or sunset cruises and see the gorge turn all shades of mauve and red.

Replas Today

For more than 20 years the plastic recycling company has produced a range of over 200 products and has grown to become Australia’s leading plastic product manufacturers. Thus, Replas has since developed world leading technologies at our plastic recycling centre to reprocess Australia’s waste into robust recycled plastic products for outdoor use. As a result, these products offer an ethical alternative to the unnecessary use of virgin materials and provide long-lasting advantages to customers.

Even more, Replas is committed to reducing the amount of plastic currently going to landfill. Because of this, we support the community’s household recycling efforts by taking plastic waste from curbside collections and utilizing it to create products which can then be enjoyed by the community within their schools, parks and towns. Also, we are proud to partner with many Australian companies; such as Coles, who have taken responsibility for the plastic waste they create. Finally, Replas assists them in reducing their environmental impact by ensuring their plastic waste is recycled and reused within Australia.

The Future of Replas Recycled Plastic

Above all, recycling plastic not only reduces the amount of waste going to landfill, but it also eliminates the need to use precious natural resources. Thus, human ingenuity has produced plastic. Replas believes the same ingenuity will produce solutions to using and reusing these products in a sustainable way. In addition, by recycling a range of plastics, Replas strongly believes it is playing its part towards creating a better environment for the future.
