​The Parks and Wildlife Service encourages Tasmanians to treasure and explore the diversity of  our reserves and natural spaces through the Discovery Ranger Program this summer holidays.

Blending entertainment, education and enjoyment, the Discovery Ranger Program highlights Tasmania’s unique landscape and native animals, and is free of charge for the entire community.

Tasmania’s award-winning Discovery Rangers will be welcoming visitors back into our national parks and reserves, running a range of activities in coastal areas  and local communities from 29 December 2020 to 26 January 2021.

The program consistently reaches over 40,000 visitors per year providing guided walks, evening talks, games and activities to suit people of all ages.

Building on past success, the Discovery Ranger Program has continued to evolve and has been operating for more than 40 years and is primarily funded through the PWS Park Entry Fee program. 

This year, the program will once again feature Aboriginal Discovery Rangers , presenting Tasmania’s rich Aboriginal heritage through a range of interactive activities. 

There will also be a renewed Healthy Parks Healthy People focus highlighting the intrinsic connection between conserving wilderness and green areas for people’s mental, emotional and physical wellbeing. 

The Discovery Ranger Program has proudly partnered with a number of organisations including WildCARE Inc, NRM North, Tasman Council and  the Bay of Fires Lodge Walk 

Further program information for the month of events is available om the PWS Facebook page. ​
