All the latest news and updates on all things camping and holiday park-ing.
Are your kids budding environmentalists? If they’re into frogs and ponds and possums, they will love Parks Victoria’s Junior Rangers program. Activities aimed at getting primary-aged children interested in the bush and learning about its conservation run all throughout the school holidays at national parks across Victoria. Whether they tackle the great outdoors on their own, with some self- guided fun, or join a ranger for a day out, little ones will discover some of the country’s great parklands with activities like bush I-Spy, knot tying and beachcombing. Ranger-led activities are run throughout the state, including locations such as Great Otway National Park, Wilsons Promontory National Park and Mount Buffalo National Park. There are activities such as ‘Rockpool Ramble’ by the beach, ‘Bush Detective’ to track wild animals, and ‘Fired into Life’ to learn how rangers prepare for bushfires. These days are popular, so make sure you book in advance, and don’t forget that all children must be accompanied by an adult. www.juniorrangers.com.au
