Wild Edibles, Bush Medicine & much MORE!


Empower yourself with the knowledge that you and your loved ones could thrive in a variety of scenarios on these unique, fun, relaxed, inclusive and very educational experiences on the beautiful Central Coast. Adult Crash Courses start from only $129 and weekend experiences $359.


Only 1 hour from Sydney and Newcastle at the picturesque rural town of Mangrove Mountain, learn to safely and sustainably utilise wild plants as food and medicine while getting hands-on with fundamental survival skills from one of Australia's most experienced teachers.


Jake Cassar is an award winning conservationist who has been described as an encyclopedia of bush knowledge; earning this reputation by living off the land for extended periods in remote areas. Jake is regularly featured as a Survival teacher and Tracker on tv and radio, recently featuring in the Sydney Morning Herald and the SBS series Prepping Australia.


Immerse yourself in the fascinating world of edible and medicinal wild plants and develop a closer relationship with the Australian bush as you dive deep into building your knowledge of the plants and animals that call it home on this pet-friendly wilderness experience.


Speaking of diving deep, feel free to join Jake for a cold plunge into nature's ice bath in our own mineral-rich freshwater spring to kick off your day! A perfect weekend getaway for couples, singles and families, Jake Cassar Bushcraft also offers corporate presentations and team building, regular school holiday programs and incursions/excursions for your local school.


Not a seasoned camper/hiker? No worries! There's not a great deal of walking involved, and many participants on the weekend experiences camp in or next to their vehicles located only a short walk from the main undercover learning area. Join the hundreds of others who have embarked on this transformational journey of discovery that is guaranteed to change the way you look at the Aussie bush forever!

"Jake is an extremely engaging and passionate teacher and is very generous with his hard-earned and truly comprehensive knowledge. He has inspired so many people through his lifelong devotion to conservation and supporting the most vulnerable in our community through his charity events and saving huge areas of bushland. His courses are authentic, fun, engaging and full of his personal stories of survival and healing himself and others using plant medicine. If you are looking to feel a closer connection with the natural world while learning the skills of our collective ancestors, I'd strongly suggest jumping on the next available course."
