Come and visit the fun and interactive Forest Fire Management Victoria zone for families to learn about what it’s like to be a firefighter. Learn all about how the team reduces the impact of bushfires on Victoria’s parks, forests and surrounding communities.
‘All Fired Up’ is brought to you by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning and Parks Victoria who are two of the lead agencies for Forest Fire Management Victoria.
See the incredible firefighting Unimog, a specially designed all-terrain vehicle that holds up to 4,000 litres of water!
Plus see one of the new G-Wagon vehicles, purpose built for fighting bushfires and conducting planned burns. You can see these vehicles up close and meet members of the firefighting crew.
