Learn tried and tested skills used by our bushmen and early settlers.

We demonstrate a range of methods used to make fire from throughout time, with a focus on techniques used in Australia’s history. We demonstrate friction methods and explore the flint and steel techniques used by our bushman and early settlers. You’ll have a chance to put these methods to the test throughout the experience. You’ll also learn how to weave lomandra, a plant found throughout our property, into rope.

Complimentary experiences are offered over a set weekly roster. Our friendly Reception team will let you know which daily experiences are available during your stay upon arrival.
