The very first  'Bear Grylls Survival Academy' courses in Australia will be held  Glenworth Valley Outdoor Adventures - a 3000 acre wilderness property, one hour north of Sydney, in the Central Coast hinterland of NSW.

With a combination of river flats, deep valleys and sandstone escarpments, this unforgiving terrain will challenge all participants to the maximum - survival training like no other.

During the course our team of experts will teach you how to survive and travel in this harsh but stunning natural Australian environment.

Whilst on this action packed adventure, participants will learn dynamic survival techniques such as navigation without a compass, starting a fire without matches, water purification, and shelter construction.

A night spent under the stars in the mountains will be an unforgettable experience for weary participants.

Day Two is an action packed schedule, using techniques such as abseiling, rock scrambling, commando crawling and river crossing to make your way back to civilization.
