Personal Ranger Hire

Personal Ranger Hire

A great way to meet the wildlife or experience the bush is to engage your own personal ranger.

Rates & availability


Pre-booking is usually required. However, if you want your own ranger and you haven't pre-booked, ask us. Depending on their workload on the day, there may be a ranger available.

Rates (may change so check at time of booking):

$110 - The rate is $110 per hour for up to 6 guests. This is in addition to your normal gate entry fee.

$33 - Or you may want to try "speed dating" at $33 for 10 minutes up close and personal time with your favourite animal - a great way to get to know a koala, dingo or another of their friends.

fitness level

You choose your level of exertion:

Because you have your own ranger, you can set the pace.

For a very leisurely experience, you can relax at the visitor centre and have your ranger bring the experience to you.

For the more adventurous, you can "go bush" with your ranger off the tracks.

Or you can settle for something in between such as an easy bush walk along the bush tracks, or a behind-the-scenes tour with some of the animals.

choose your experience

Here are some suggestions, but feel free to ask for something different:

Spikes, scales, feathers and fur. An up-close-and-personal encounter with your favourite animal(s).

Bush tucker and bush medicine. Incorporates Aboriginal lessons from the bush.

Bush tools. Throw a boomerang, sound the bullroarer and handle various indigenous tools.
