Djilgi Dreaming Yabbie Farm Tour

YOUR EXPERIENCE PROVIDER

Wuddi Aboriginal Cultural Tours

Join Grant and Anne Riley on an experience in the bush garden at the Wuddi Aboriginal Art Gallery in the Golden Outback region of Western Australia. Your tour commences in the sunken bush food garden surrounded by native bush foods. Your guide Grant will welcome you in language and share his history, traditional artefacts, storytelling and cultural heritage of the area and its first people.

Learn about the Aboriginal history combined with a visit to a local yabbie farm before being treated to a gourmet yabbie lunch. An important food source to the Wilman people was the ‘Djilgi’ (yabbie). As you will discover on this tour, the spiritual and cultural connections that the region’s First People share with this place are still very much alive and how this traditional delicacy is now in global demand.


Insights into your experience

Join the Riley’s as you relax in the sunken bush food garden surrounded by native bush foods. Your guide Grant will welcome you in language and share his history, traditional artefacts, storytelling and cultural heritage of the area and its first people. Try your hand at roasting quandong nuts over the fire whilst sampling Anne’s modern twist of emu pate, homemade jam, bush damper and tea.

Travel in air-conditioned comfort on our 12 seater tour bus and visit the local yabbie farm to see the operations, purchase local gourmet products and sample these freshwater delicacies and enjoy a gourmet lunch. This freshwater crustacean was once abundant in Lake Dumbleyung and was traditionally cooked over open coals. Extensive land clearing and the resulting rise in the lake’s salinity has all but wiped out the local supply of the Djilgi from Lake Dumbleyung. A local enterprising farming family now farm the yabbie commercially.
