Great family fun! Plus prizes!

Challenge yourself, your friends and the local rangers as you search for some of Victoria’s magnificent plants, animals and even fungi. 

Use the QuestaGame app to submit sightings of the life you find as you explore the participating Victorian parks between 23rd September and 8th October, 2017. Also complete any of the Junior Rangers 'park quests' for bonus gold, and a chance to win the 'Quest Hero' prize!

You can also join the Junior Rangers Clan in QuestaGame. Joining a clan allows you to compete as a team and communicate with other clan members.
