Food and Wine

Aboriginal food is commonly referred to as “bush tucker” which means foods sourced from the land. Bush tucker will vary depending on the region, some ingredients may also be used for medicinal purposes, while other resources may be used to weave baskets or make spears and other tools. 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.

There is a growing number of food and wine experiences, ranging from fine dining to catch and cook which all allow you to taste the real Australia.
