WA Outback Survival Course

Survival situations can not be anticipated, they just happen. Whether or not you survive such a situation largely depends on the decisions you make in the first few hours. Your decisions can be made easier if you have had some training in what is known as bush survival.

These courses are conducted near Chidlow, one hour’s drive from Perth in the Hills.

Friday, 12 May 2017: WA Outback Survival Course - $650.00

Duration: 3 days.

The course starts Friday 4.00pm and finishes Sunday afternoon around 3.00pm


You will have 2 nights bush camping with a campfire classroom set up for all those interested in learning or honing their basic/advanced survival knowledge on how to have a safer or more adventurous wilderness experience, and of course what to do when ‘Plan A’ is not going the way you intended it to.

Many irrational fears cloud people’s engagement with our wilderness – even in the bushlands of suburbia. The fear of snakes, spiders, becoming lost and being alone are all acquired fears. Survival skills can replace fear with respect for, and trust in, nature. Such knowledge enables people to walk freely and feel safer in our natural environment. As a society we need to recapture the survival skills and empathy with nature which our ancestors instinctively knew. True appreciation and understanding of our natural environment may be the only factor that saves it, and, on occasions, us.
