The present paper analyzes and compares the involvement of Romanian NGOs versus Australian NGOs, assuming that, although these two countries are very different, Romanian Non-Governmental Organizations might benefit from the experience and involvement of Australian NGOs. This study depicts the journeys made by Romanians during 2008-2014, which reveal that most of them are traveling within the European Union and very, few to Australia. The main NGOs in Australia, which take measures of protecting natural resources that attract tourists and are actively involved in promoting them and continuous visitors’ education, are presented herein. Through interactive programs, NGOs can act as tourist entertainers, which brings them into contact with many tourists, either Romanian or foreign. This represents, as well, a means of earning money, which are to be later invested into environment protection projects.
