The number of seasonal rangers stationed in parks around the state is set to triple amid a rise in nature-based tourism.
New rangers will be based across the state this summer, including 18 positions at Barmah National Park, Lake Eildon National Park, Kinglake National Park, and the Murray River parks at Mildura and Echuca.
Parks Victoria CEO Simon Talbot encouraging people to apply.
“The rise in nature-based tourism has seen more visitors than ever visiting our parks across the state and we’re ensuring we have the support needed to welcome them,” he said.
“These roles provide support to our hard-working ranger teams that care for 4.1 million hectares of land and welcome millions of visitors each year.”
Area chief ranger for northern Victoria Andrew McDougall said every day was different for park rangers.
“You’ll build and maintain tracks, trails and camping areas, help keep our visitors safe, protect the environment from weeds and feral animals, and importantly, welcome and share stories with visitors,” he said.
