Teaching and spreading the word about primitive and traditional skills is one of Rocky Instincts key missions. Our school workshops bring history to life and connect students to their human ancestry as well as link knowledge and skills to the Australian Curriculum.
Skills that can be used to customise your workshop (depending on year level) include:
- Traditional fire making (including hand drill, bow drill, pump drill and more)
- Natural cordage (rope) making
- Stone tools and artefacts
- Spear throwing
- Shelter building
- Animal trapping
- Plant ID and Bush Tucker
- Bush glue construction
- Natural Navigation
- Archeology dig and stone tool creation
We also offer team building activities which bring the whole class together to work on one project such as a giant rope for tug of war and shelter building.

“We had Rocky Instincts run a workshop at our school for our Prep to Year Two students with their father’s for Father’s Day. It was very professionally presented and all participants enjoyed it immensely. Malachi was extremely knowledgeable but also able to explain how and why in a way that the young students could understand. The fathers also enjoyed the afternoon and it was a great experience for them to share with their daughters. We immediately booked Rocky Instincts to return to run this event again!” Rockhampton Girls Grammar School
“Rocky Instincts delivered an outstanding programme that was perfectly targeted, delivered with professionalism, integrity and respect whilst at the same time being fun and entertaining. Acknowledgement of the cultural and group dynamic sensitivities was terrific. Risk Management was well managed and negotiated in advance and staffs relaxed yet alert approach to all aspects of the programme was noticed and appreciated. We look forward to having a long and fruitful association with Rocky Instincts in helping us deliver our contemporary, sequenced and challenging Outdoor Education programme.” Rockhampton Grammar School
“The Rocky Instincts sessions that were delivered in Emmaus College, to the students participating in the Duke of Edinburgh International Award Program was very professionally planned and delivered. Students who participated were engaged throughout and gained very valuable skills in bushcraft and fire-making. I have no hesitation in including these sessions again.” Emmaus College Rockhampton
