A German tourist who went missing for almost three weeks while walking in Australia’s outback survived by eating flies, police say.

Daniel Dudzisz, 26, went missing on 17 February while walking in central west Queensland.

He got lost and stranded between two flooded parts of a river, police said. A motorist picked him up on Thursday.

Dudzisz was found “safe and well” and appeared to be “in reasonable spirits”, police said.

“He joked about never going hungry in the Australian outback because of the amount of flies you can eat for their protein, apparently,” Police Inspector Mark Henderson told. Dudzisz has refused medical treatment after being found.

Dudzisz went missing during a walk between Queensland towns Windorah and Jundah.
Police had searched the area with a helicopter and quad bikes, without success.
