'Ingenious survival tactics': Mother, son survive 10 days in Australian bush”

The 40-year-old woman and her nine-year-old boy entered the Mount Royal National Park east of Singleton and became disorientated.

New South Wales Police said the 40-year-old woman and 9-year-old boy were supposed to be completing a walk in Mount Royal National Park which should take two hours, however they managed to get lost.

They both survived the 10 days by drinking water from a rock pool, 7 News website reported.

"The search terrain was really quite hostile in some areas", he told the Herald, adding that rescuers had been searching for the pair for four days after their auto was sighted at the park's carpark on Monday.

Police Inspector Joanne Schultz said they were in remarkably good condition considering their experience.

The mother and the son were reported missing by family members on 4 October when they failed to return.

Officials were alerted to the missing pair after the woman's auto was seen in a carpark on Monday (October 9).

'The body does some unusual things when put into stressful situations, ' NSW Ambulance Inspector Steenson said.

On Thursday just after midday, the mother and son made their way onto a roadway and were picked up by passing police.

He said the pair had some scratches and bites but were fairly well hydrated "due to some quite ingenious survival tactics".

"There are some steep slopes and thick scrub, and it drops off by about 500m in some parts of the search area".

"Given that the search has been under way for four days, it was really good to find them in such good physical shape".
