Bush Search & Rescue VictoriaBSAR Logo

Search and rescue in Victoria is the responsibility of Victoria Police.  But when people are lost in the bush the Victoria Police Search and Rescue Squad may request assistance from Bush Search and Rescue Victoria.

Bush Search and Rescue Victoria is a dedicated group of bushwalkers and ski tourers that assist Victoria Police in searching for lost people, often in rough terrain. Bush Search and Rescue Victoria was formed in 1949 after the Police were impressed by the professionalism of volunteer bushwalkers who were involved in an extended search.  Since then, Bush Search and Rescue Victoria has provided volunteer search and rescue services to the people of Victoria on over 90 occasions.

Bush Search and Rescue Victoria volunteers can be asked to participate in searches at short notice, in adverse weather conditions and in rough and extreme terrain.  The community needs bushwalkers, ski tourers, snowboarders and other people experienced in the bush for this role.

Bush Search and Rescue Victoria has the ability to send out small, self-sufficient search groups, which can navigate accurately without landmarks and stay out overnight.  This is what sets Bush Search and Rescue Victoria apart from most other volunteer search and rescue organisations.

To join Bush Search and Rescue Victoria you must be a member of Bushwalking Victoria, either as a member of a club or as an individual member.

Visit the Bush Search and Rescue Victoria website for further information and details about entry guidelines and training events.
