Volunteer Ranger Program

Welcome to the Volunteer Ranger Program Portal


So you’re interested in becoming a volunteer ranger?


Volunteering is a great way to experience South Australia's magnificent parks network while providing a valuable volunteer service to park visitors and national park staff.





The Volunteer Ranger Program provides opportunities for South Australians with a passion for the environment to get involved in activities that help support the management of our parks and reserves, and connect people to nature.



Minimum Requirements


  • A current First Aid Certificate (HTLAID003 Provide First Aid or higher)
  • Ability to make you own way to the park (either by car or public transportation)
  • Mobile phone


Volunteers will be required to undergo a Working With Children Check and National Police Certificate before commencing volunteer duties.


Volunteers will be provided with all the support and training required to be able to complete volunteer tasks safely and competently.
