Alto on Bourke êêêê

636 Bourke Street
Melbourne VIC 3000

With deserts, wetlands, and everything in between, Australia is at the front line of climate change, and a wave of luxurious new hotels offers sustainability for nature lovers who don?t want to rough it. The city of Melbourne aims to go carbon neutral by 2020, and the Alto Hotel on Bourke (Winner Conde Nast Traveler ? WORLD SAVERS AWARDS 2010 for Environmental Preservation) is proving that it can be done. The carbon?neutral hotel is so eco?friendly that Al Gore?s staff stayed there when the green guru came to town in 2009 for a Climate Project Summit.

Located in the heart of Melbourne's central business district, a 15 mins walk to the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, or a 5 minute tram ride. The first Melbourne CBD Hotel to receive the coveted EarthCheck Silver Certification, the Alto is also the first city hotel in Australia to offset all calculated carbon output and therefore be carbon neutral.
