What you'll do

Escape civilization for a couple of peaceful days and return with a handy set of bush skills—and loads of great photos. Learn how to pitch a tent by the Macquarie River, catch some local cod, and spot emus and wild goats on this retreat into the bush. You’ll see how authentic damper baking is done—a bread-making art that is sure to impress your city slicker friends back home. Or, you can sit back in the shade with a cool drink and a book until it's too dark to read, then tell stories around a campfire.

I've been camping in the bush since I was a kid - I am passionate about sharing this extraordinary country with locals and visitors alike. I've got skills to rival Dundee and plenty of good yarns, and I love to meet new people and share stories round a campfire. With years of experience in the outdoors, from picking the perfect camp spot, to pitching a tent, fishing, and the all important damper baking - I'll make sure you are safe and comfortable, while enjoying a unique Aussie experience. This trip is about you. It can / may be changed in ways to be more suitable to you and the weather.
