Junior Rangers Program
We do everything we can to help you enjoy a Great Barrier Reef family holiday on Heron Island.
Heron Island offers young visitors from 7 to 12 years a unique range of interesting and educational experiences with our Junior Ranger Program, which operates during Australian eastern seaboard school holidays
Outside of this period, 2 weeks notice needs to be given prior to arrival and a minimum of 3 children are needed.
The program has been developed by Heron Island's experienced team of marine biologists and naturalist guides with the cooperation of the University of Queensland, and the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service.
The Junior Rangers Program offers a range of nature-based activities designed to nurture a sense of exploration and caring for the environment, from reef walks, bird-watching and beachcombing through to the opportunity to design and run your own resort island.
Junior Ranger activities contribute to the earning of a variety of colourful embroidered badges, from the "Three-Kilometre Badge" through to the highly prized "Junior Ranger Badge."
Priced from $15 AUD per child, the fees cover the provision of a Junior Rangers Workbook, Junior Ranger Hat, embroidered badges and Junior Ranger activities throughout the duration of your stay.
