Discovery Ranger program to draw visitors to parks and reserves


The Minister for Environment, Parks and Heritage, Brian Wightman, said Tasmania’s parks and reserves would be packed full of exciting and educational activities over the Easter holiday.

Mr Wightman encouraged everyone to enjoy some of the State’s most beautiful places by participating in the free activities on offer through the Parks and Wildlife Service’s Discovery Ranger program.

“During the Easter break, Discovery Rangers run a range of free activities for visitors to some of our national parks and reserves. Activities include guided walks, natural and cultural heritage talks and presentations, and a host of other interpretive activities” Mr Wightman said.

“This year’s Easter program will be held at the Tasman, Mt Field and South Bruny Island national parks in the south, Freycinet National Park on the East Coast, Narawntapu National Park in the north and there will be a roving ranger based in the Mt William National Park and north-east reserves.”

Visitors are encouraged to check the local park’s notice board and community notice boards, or to visit the Parks and Wildlife Service web site for detailed information, including times, for the planned activities.
