Nature First Supporters

As a Nature First Supporter, you’ll get closer to nature.

Here at Parks Victoria, we're into nature – and we know that you are, too. When we need to recharge, rebalance, and feel reinvigorated, we get into nature.

From snow-covered alps to the red desert fringe, towering mountain-ash forests to kelp reefs, sponge gardens and so much more — Victoria is worth protecting. Working together with Traditional Owners, Parks Victoria is committed to Caring for Country.

That's why we’re offering a way for you to deepen your connection with nature and ensure it’s here for future generations to enjoy. Nature First Supporters is a free membership program that takes you behind the scenes of Parks Victoria’s places, programs and people through nature-based experiences, conservation stories and exclusive offers. Join today and be part of a community that's passionate about supporting the future of Victoria’s precious places.

Become a Nature First Supporter today and together we can protect nature’s future.

(Don’t worry, it doesn’t cost anything to love nature!)
