I participated in the two day bush survival course and it was super. Ben and Dylan were great guides and I learned a huge amount in beautiful surroundings.

My buddy and I undertook the 2-day Bush Survival Course on the weekend of 12-13 June which was run by Dylan and his offsider, Ben. This course was everything I was hoping for and more. The lessons started as soon as our group of 9 participants loaded into the van for the drive into the Blue Mountains. Dylan's easy-going approach and conversational style when explaining things was incredible and we were learning things without even realising it. There were so many highlights over the 2 days I could spend ages listing them all out, but the top one for me was starting a fire with my bare hands using a hand drill. Dylan was even kind enough to gift me a set on the drive out so I can impress the missus at home haha I would highly recommend High and Wild Australian Adventures to anyone who has an interest in learning about survival techniques, the Australian Bush in general and what it has to offer. Dylan is a natural and I look forward to doing another course in the near future. Oh yeah, the food was awesome too, so don't bother bringing anything other than snacks with you or you'll be lobbing around unnecessary weight in your pack like I always do :)

We went to Mellow Bath, the guide made a great choice based on my climbing skills. The place was amazing, got quite a few climbs and also he explained some anchoring and how to setup top rope. It was a great day and will highly recommend it.

High & Wild provided a great day of abseiling for our Class 5 school group. Very professional and attentive service made for a stress free day that all the students enjoyed.

I booked the half day abseiling adventure in the Blue Mountains on-line 4 days before my wife and I went. We are 53 year husband and wife of average - good fitness with no experience. The meeting point was the Youth Hostel next to the Katoomba Police Station in Katoomba Street, Katoomba. Couldn't be easier to find. There we were met by Tim who was wonderful guide. Tim knew everything you wanted to know about the area and instilled confidence. When you're standing on the edge and feeling a little nervous he's the bloke you want telling you nothing can go wrong and he was right. On our second trip down the side of the mountain we were able to let go of the rope completely for the photo and had complete confidence we were in good hands. It was really well run by a professional crew and I'm sure all the instructors are good but Tim was a stand out on our holiday. Could speak highly enough about his business.
