Nature is Calling
Junior Park Rangers Parks Victoria Summer Holidays Activities Victoria
What will you find? Be a detective..

There are so many fun programs to take part in over the school holidays - get away from technology and into nature with the Junior Rangers program at Parks Victoria. There is a range of activities across all the victorian Parks all hosted by Park Rangers for kids 6-12 and their families; you can check out what's near you on this map and the best thing is it's free!.

Activities such as Minibeast Discovery, Rockpool Ramble and Bush Detective, among others, will not only get the kids interested in nature and wildlife but they will also have lots of fun. They may even visit places that few park visitors ever see.

What will you catch?

As Parks Victoria Education and Interpretation Officer, James Adams, says "It's wonderful to see kids getting out of the lounge room to explore and enjoy Victoria's beautiful parks. At Parks Victoria, we believe that nature is essential for human health and wellbeing, and everyone should have the opportunity to connect with nature, especially children." You never know your child may be the next Park Ranger or even the next David Attenborough.
