Park Explorers

Why does Victoria have protected places?

Parks Victoria invites Year 3-6 students to explore this question through our free education program, Park Explorers.

Park Explorers encourages students to discover and care for their natural spaces through place based inquiry learning. The program is designed to engage upper primary school students and strongly links with the Year 3-6 Victorian Curriculum areas of Science, Geography, Health and Physical Education, Critical and Creative Thinking and the cross-curriculum priorities of Sustainability and Aboriginal Histories and Culture.

Park Explorers schools are equipped with resources such as videos, maps and a teaching and learning pack containing curriculum linked activities that support student inquiry.  
Places are limited to 30 schools in 2020 so if you’re interested in becoming a Park Explorers school please contact the education team at for more information.
