Bush Search and Rescue Victoria is a dedicated volunteer search and rescue service in the state of Victoria, Australia. We participate in land-based search and rescue for persons lost in bush and alpine areas under the direction of the Victoria Police.
Our searchers include experienced bushwalkers, backcountry and cross-country skiers and mountaineers who have had specialist search and rescue training . We are capable of operating independently in the field for several days.
Our BSAR Manual provides information about search and rescue.

BSAR acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
