Naturewise Conservation Holidays want to show you why the Grampians are a must-see for all nature-lovers visiting Victoria. Renowned for its rugged mountain ranges, rich cultural heritage and spectacular wildflower displays.

The 168,000 hectare Grampians National Park is a vast wilderness area protecting a diversity of plants and animals, many of which are endemic to the park.

Naturewise Conservation Holidays will take you behind the scenes on this exclusive, small group adventure as you work alongside a Parks Victoria Ranger to 'track and protect' the elusive Brush-tailed Phascogales, which are on Victoria's threatened species list.

Take part in setting up camera monitoring equipment and collecting data, and in the process learn more about the animal's natural habitat while making a direct contribution to the Victorian Biodiversity Atlas.

You will sample some of the region's best wines, see ancient Aboriginal rock art as you immerse yourself in the local culture, and be inspired by the breathtaking landscape. This Grampians experience is not to be missed.

Conservation Volunteers offers Naturewise Conservation Holidays, they are quality, small group ecotour experiences where you get to make a real difference to the conservation of Australia's unique environment.

Naturewise Conservation Holidays embraces the principles of responsible travel combining conservation with exploration. Their aim is to connect visitors with Australia's beautiful and unique natural areas, while helping to ensure their future preservation. The Naturewise programs are award recognised and Ecotourism certified.

Naturewise Conservation Holidays range from two days to two weeks. Each program offers the opportunity to visit unique destinations, get close to nature and explore the great outdoors, while contributing to conservation.

The time spent undertaking conservation activities typically makes up 30 to 40 per cent of the trip with the other time spent touring such as bush walks, Island tours, wildlife viewing and visiting National Parks.

No experience is required to participate in a Naturewise Conservation Holidays program, though you should be reasonably fit and active and declare any pre-existing medical conditions at the time of booking.
