Discovery Ranger Program 2017/18

Constable Darroch Donald (alias Discovery Ranger Darroch) and convict Pete (alias Ranger in Charge, Pete Lingard) perform pop-up theatre for visitors to Maria Island as part of the summer Discovery Ranger Program.
Our Summer Discovery Ranger Program runs during the peak summer period - 27 December 2017 to 29 January 2018 - and offers visitors to Tasmania's national parks and reserves the chance to join in a wide range of activities such as guided walks, evening talks, childrens' activities and much, much more.

Discovery Rangers will be out in local communities sharing the wonder of the surrounding reserves at community events throughout the summer holidays.

Now in its 39th year,  the program continues to expand and innovate.

For the first time, Aboriginal Discovery Rangers will be working throughout the State over the summer.

Mandarin-speaking Discovery Rangers will also be available at Cradle, Mt Field, Maria Island and Freycinet to assist Chinese-speaking visitors.
Full details of the program will be posted closer to the starting date - 27 December.
