The Junior Rangers invites you to participate in hands-on history, geography, wildlife and nature-based outdoor classes with a Parks Victoria guide.

"Getting outside, getting dirty and getting up close to nature and history while exploring makes outdoor adventures the best part of being a kid," says Parks Victoria, Area Chief Ranger Southern Peninsula, Kris Rowe.

Rug up and explore the region's beautiful National Parks between Monday 2 July and Thursday 12 July. Such activities include:

Winters Wonder Walks

Rangers share stories of:

Shipwrecks and bushrangers at Cape Schanck.
Historical days when tourists arrived at Sorrento's Ocean Beach by paddle steamer and tram.
