Mother and young son survive 10 days in Australian bush

The pair were picked up on Mount Royal Road by police after a large scale search lasting three days

And police say if it wasn't for Bear Grylls' popular bush survival show the young boy and his mother may not have survived, the Daily Telegraph reports.

The 40-year-old and the boy planned a two-hour walk in Mount Royal National Park in the Hunter region some 240km north of Sydney.

The pair only had water with them, and when that ran out they relied on water from natural resources.

It is understood that they did not eat anything for the entire time they were lost and managed to collect water by licking it from plants and digging water from holes - Bear Grylls style.

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

However the pair's vehicle was only discovered in the park on Monday, sparking a four-day search involving police, the SES, paramedics and National Parks and Wildlife.

NSW Ambulance Inspector Andrew Steenson said "it was really good to find them in such good physical shape".

'They're both very well, obviously very relieved, very hungry but otherwise they're quite good, ' she said.

Police are impressed with their resilience and they are now recovering at Singleton Hospital where they are being treated for dehydration and insect bites.
