Bush Tucker

Did you know that for tens of thousands of years, Aboriginal people have been gathering seeds, milling them and making breads? Have you ever wondered what is Australian food? Aboriginal food is commonly referred to as “bush tucker” which means foods sourced from the land. Aboriginal people are adept at finding local ingredients in the bush - from quandongs or bush plums and finger limes to wattle seed. The knowledge of the power and potential for bush ingredients has been passed down over generations and forms a key part of Aboriginal culture and heritage.

Aboriginal food and cooking represents the culture’s deep connection to the land and offers an insight into the practices and beliefs that have endured and evolved over thousands of years. You can experience the amazing bounty of food, cook with the community and share stories with dinner around the campfire.
