Two permanent jobs are currently on offer within Central Region - Clermont or Idalia National Park.

As a OO3 Ranger, you will be hands on.

Within the Clermont work unit, Rangers manage numerous protected areas, including Epping Forest National park (Scientific), Nairana National Park, Cudmore National Park and Peak Range National Park. They also manage a number of State forests in the Clermont area, including the General Permission Areas which are designated for fossicking.

For the Idalia work unit, the focus is on managing the natural resources and managing recreational assets. This included plant and infrastructure maintenance, maintaining roads and track network, pest and fire management and cultural heritage protection.
