The Victorian Ranger Association (VRA) was established in the early 1980s to represent Park Rangers and their professional interests in the management of natural and cultural assets in the state of Victoria, Australia.

When Parks Victoria formed in 1996, the VRA changed its focus to represent all rangers of the previous (amalgamated) organisations rather than just the previous National Park Service rangers.

Today the VRA represents all individuals who work in a field delivery role for Victorian organizations that have natural and cultural resource conservation as their main focus.

The VRA is an active member of both the Australian Ranger Federation (ARF) and the International Ranger Federation (IRF). VRA members automatically are members of both these bodies.
