The advanced course is conducted on very large cattle station land in the Pilbara Region of Western Australia, chosen because it typifies the “Outback of Australia” with its rugged beauty, gorges, billabongs with fresh water fish available, abundant variety of edible and medicinal plants with the reality of remoteness. August/September are the best months to take advantage of the fruiting season of the Pilbara plants with temperatures in 30 + Celsius.

Dressed in your bush clothes – nothing extra. Fish and vegetation are on the menu – no native animals will be used for food apart from fish during practical phase.
