A light aircraft is flying over the Great Dividing Range just before dawn. It experiences engine and electrical malfunctions. The pilot makes an emergency crash landing in a small clearing deep in the bush. Luckily, all on board survive, suffering only scratches and bruises. When morning comes they realise they are lost and appear to have no way to contact help.

Collaborate when brainstorming and creating survival plans

Make water collection devices

Construct shelters out of random materials salvaged from the wreck of the plane and the surrounding environment

Perform a first aid procedure, construct stretchers and transport an injured survivor to safety.
