What's On - Book Now

All Junior Rangers activities are led by a Parks Victoria Ranger to encourage families to explore parks and create lifelong connections with nature. Families can learn all about wildlife, plants, micro-critters, bushfires, marine life, heritage, culture, and so much more.

All families are welcome. Junior Rangers activities are free to participate in and are designed for primary school aged children. Activities take place in parks across Victoria during the school holidays.
