Conservation Volunteers and Parks Victoria offer an exciting range of new ethical vacations that blend amazing sights with meaningful conservation activities. Naturewise Eco Escapes provide participants with an opportunity to work with Park Rangers and conservation experts on key research projects, and make a personal contribution to the preservation of our special places and threatened wildlife. They are meaningful, small group travel experiences in some of Victoria’s most beautiful parks. 

Conservation activities typically make up 30-40 per cent of the trip, with the remaining time spent touring the local surrounds. Naturewise participants are able explore some of the most spectacular scenery in the state, visit the local attraction, sample local produce, learn more about the local culture in the regions that they visit.

Naturewise Eco Escapes in Victoria range from one-day trips to Woodlands, where participants can help save the Eastern Barred Bandicoot from extinction, to four day conservation expeditions to the Grampians, the Glenelg region and Little Desert National Park. No experience is required to participate, through you should be reasonably fit and active.

Connect with nature and explore the great outdoors while contributing to conservation. For more information on Naturewise Eco Escapes, or to book your next conservation holiday, visit the Conservation Volunteers website.
