Bangalow Bush Tucker Tour

YOUR EXPERIENCE PROVIDER

Explore Byron Bay

Join us on a special 90 minute Aboriginal bush tucker tour at Bangalow guided by Delta Kay, an Arakwal Bundjalung woman who is passionate about sharing Aboriginal culture. Delta is well known and respected as an Arakwal elder in the Byron Shire. Her ancestors have lived in the area surrounding Byron Bay for thousands of years and Arakwal customs, knowledge, ceremonies and stories have been passed down to her for safe keeping.

Insights into your experience

On this tour, Delta Kay takes guests along the stunning Byron Creek, located within Bangalow Parklands.

Once an old grazing land, thankfully the Anglican church in partnership with Bangalow Land and Rivercare Group have regenerated this area with hundreds of native plant species that are really important to Bundjalung people.

During the tour, Delta points out a variety of these edible bush tucker plants, as well as plants used for natural medicine, jewellery, fibre, tools and weapons. She speaks about local Indigenous history and shares traditional stories that have been passed down to her from her ancestors.

There are opportunities to learn some Bundjalung language and we are sometimes lucky to see Binging the river turtle or Junbung the platypus.

At the end of each tour, guests enjoy tasting a variety of delicious bush tucker foods and have a nice cup of bush tea and a biscuit.
