Parks job “best in the world”
Monday 20 March, 2017
Daniel Burton feels he’s got one of the best jobs in the world.
Working as a Field Services Officer for Parks Victoria, he was born and raised in Mildura and now enjoys working outdoors in the Mallee at Hattah-Kulkyne and Murray-Sunset national parks.
He has always had an interest in photography so also captures the beautiful landscapes and wildlife that he gets to see each day and across four seasons in these parks.
“I love the beauty of the place and being outdoors. And that is why I chose this job. I really want to help make a difference and care for these amazing places for generations to come. I want them to be able to see it as I do now.
“You can’t beat the Murray River region for fantastic outdoor activities including camping, canoeing and swimming so I encourage everyone to come and visit and see it for yourselves.
“The baby Wedge-tailed Eagle pictured was nesting near Hattah and still flies around the park so I got to see the little one growing up. These are the kinds of wonderful moments in nature that I get to experience and see while out and about helping to maintain and care for our incredible parks.”
Daniel’s photos speak for themselves; take a break and visit Victoria’s Mallee parks.
