Why You Should Do Our Courses & What Makes Us So Different

Through the medium of practical hands-on training in bushcraft, wilderness survival, field tracking and observation skills you can learn to further appreciate and expand your understanding of the natural world.

Bush Lore Australia provides training in search and rescue tracking, disaster survival, urban survival, survival self-defence, self-reliance, sustainability, team building, leadership and personal development.

What makes us different to other organisations teaching Survival and Tracking Skills?

Well we just don't teach you the techniques and tricks of the trade ... we show you the philosophy that underpins engagement with the natural world! We show you that its not a case of contesting against nature, rather a process of working with natural systems. We believe that this fosters a sense of true 'Resilience'.

We show you how to make your experience meaningful to other parts of your life rather than something you tuck away in your back pocket for someday when you might get lost in the bush! We show you the doorway to a new world of curiosity, exploration and personal freedom that most are not aware of.

Dare to Win ...

Client Feedback - Jesse M:

"Having just completed my three-day survival course over the long weekend I would just like to express my deepest thanks towards Rich and Rebel for such a comprehensive, detailed and utterly engaging and fun course. It has exceeded my expectations. I was not only amazed at rich’s vast and seemingly endless knowledge about survival and bush craft, but also his ability to cater to the different levels of already established levels of experience within the group with ease. There was never a point over the three days where I felt I was being rushed or getting lost or disoriented with too much information."

    Hi Rich,

    I’d like to thank you for last weekend 3 days survival course that my daughter Eden and I was taking part at. We both enjoyed it very much and learned from the experience. Eden is already asking when is the next course and for a 10 y/o girl to enjoy that so much is a testimony that you did a very good job.

    I will book another adventure with you guys shortly.

    keep all the good work.

    Hi Rich
    I was lucky enough to experience your 3 days survival camp at the beginning of August – this was without a doubt one of the best decision I’ve made.
    Living in the Far North – The Tropics, my biggest fear was not the bush, the wild or not having food for 3 days. My greatest fear was the cold – not being able to sleep in my shelter and shivering through the night by 8 degrees. Not only did I sleep great I felt even better after the 3 days camp. My morning “Bush Mint Tea” followed by a hot broth made out of “Wombat Berry”, “Lamandra” and “Catia” for dinner gave me the energy I needed. I felt more alert and alive then ever before!
    Thank you Rich for teaching us the purist survival philosophy – Mother Earth is unstoppable and truly amazing!
    I am more confident & happier and feel that I need less in life. I am heading out bush this weekend with my family and kids – it’s like I am hooked to be in the wild.
    And thank you for sharing your incredible stories,skills and intelligence!
    All the best , Lili
