Book Now - Born survivor

We use two locations for this course depending on the season. One being set in the idyllic and majestic Snowy Mountains on the banks of the mighty Snowy River and the other in the Semi-arid Murray sunset national park near Mildura. The Murray-Sunset National Park, in Victoria's far north-west corner, is in one of the few remaining semi-arid regions in the world where the environment is relatively untouched. With its wide open landscapes, breath taking sunsets and starry nights, its vastness and isolation is perfect for our born survivor course.

This survival course is perfect for the adventurer seeking a broader understanding of core survival subjects, this course aims to equip you with the knowledge, skill-set and confidence to enjoy wilderness environments safely.
