Bush Lore Australia Location

IMG_1118The Bush Lore Australia Survival, Tracking and Bushcraft School is located on private property situated in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland area of South-east Queensland, Australia. This is our permanent location though we do also use alternate locations from time to time. The school is located in a woodland forest area, nestled intimately in the bush. Students are totally immersed in nature here with access to river frontage, remnant sub-tropical rainforest and mountainous high country. Facilities at the school are deliberately maintained at base level, to ensure that participants are never separated from the environment during courses while also conforming to our strict environmental impact policies. The school is approximately an hour and a half’s drive from Brisbane airport with the closest major town being Maleny. Access from overseas and interstate is achievable via Brisbane airport or Sunshine Coast Airports, shuttle bus services and pick up services provided by Bush Lore Australia staff. Cost effective accommodation is available in the area to allow people to arrive prior to or stay longer after the course.

    Hi, I am interested in learning about bushcraft and bush survival with my family (my children are 5&7 – although my 7 year old son is the most interested). Do you operate any suitable in WA? Or can you recommend anyone who does? Thanks, Sarah

      Hi Sarah, thanks for contacting us. The only person we recommend in WA is Mr Bob Cooper at Bob Cooper Survival. Have a chat with him and see what he can do.

    I’m almost 63, reasonably fit with some arthritic knees but nothing that restricts me too much. I am interested in learning and confidence building.
    Is this a course for me? What should I ask myself ?

      Hi Steve, we focus heavily on the mental and emotional aspects related to survival particularly so being injured, less mobile or otherwise less than 100% is not such a big deal. Understanding how to keep yourself in a determined and positive frame of mind as much as possible is the trick.

    please send me the exact address details so that I can find the place on the 20th of feb when the survival coarse starts. The road name and suburb will help. Ive looked at the maps on your location and these don\’t help. I need more info for my gps to get me there!

      Hi Jozef, you should have received an info and enrolment pack when you booked. If you don’t have that please let us know and we’ll get it emailed out to you ASAP. That information has all the details of the location as well as what to bring.

      Hi Allan, there are many and most not in the Bushcraft space. Australian Timbers – Sewell, Eucalyptus, a guide to identification – Brooker & Kleinig, A Field Guide to Australian Trees – Holliday. Also if you can find them are the Bushcraft Books by Ron Edwards which contain a lot of old wisdom on species suitable for particular uses. Hope that assists. RH

    We have just moved to Toowoomba and would like to find a survival course for my almost 16 year old son. He is wanting to hike and camp solo which I would like for him to pursue once he has a survival course under his belt. Would you please let me know if tou have any plans to conduct a course in our area.
    Many thanks,
    Victoria Sherley-Price

      Hi Victoria, we only really run courses here at the School for a range of permit and insurance reasons. We do offer courses all year long and can accept people 16 and over with parental authority. If that assists?

      Kind regards,

      Rich H.
