Sherpa Volunteers

Sherpa Program, Grampians

Visitors with mobility limitations wishing to use the Parks Victoria TrailRider all-terrain wheelchair can now book wheelchair operators, or volunteer Sherpas, to assist them in the Grampians and Dandenong Ranges National Parks.

The Sherpa Volunteer Program provides trained chair operators to assist in pushing/pulling the visitor in the TrailRider chair on many spectacular park trails in the Grampians and in the Dandenong Ranges National Parks. The additional physical assistance provided by volunteers makes it possible for visitors to access park trails that would not be possible without several chair operators.

The service is free for park visitors and a minimum of one week's notice is required for booking Sherpa Volunteers.

For further information or to book a Sherpa please contact:
