MACPAC Principal Partners Junior Ranger

The Junior Rangers program is proudly supported by our Principal Partner, Macpac, encouraging the next generation of nature lovers.

The Junior Ranger program encourages children to explore Victoria’s amazing parks with a range of free and fun activities designed to inspire curiosity, discovery and connection.

Have you ever wanted to learn about animal superpowers, discover the secrets of Victoria's Parks and Reserves, or simply explore beautiful beaches, forests, deserts with a ranger? If so then you’ve come to the right place, Junior Rangers get to do all of this and so much more!

During the school holidays, Junior Rangers and their families can join a Ranger to take part in fun park-based activities like rock pool rambles, flora/fauna discovery sessions, bushfire and biodiversity, heritage interpretation, spotlight walks, and more.  These take place in parks all around the state, and all of them are free! 

Junior Rangers can also get out and about anytime they like with a range of cool Junior Ranger activities that they can download right here from the website and complete with their family and friends anytime they like.
