Insights into your experience

The Australian bush is full of edible fruits, roots, nuts, seeds and leaves. For centuries Aboriginal people have gathered, hunted and harvested this bush tucker. Non Aboriginal people are only beginning to learn about the incredible natural and native food resources on our doorstep.

This two hour bush tucker tour is led by Delta Kay, a local Arakwal woman. Finding bush tucker takes special knowledge that developed from living close to nature. Delta has lived on Country all of her life, she is a proud Arakwal custodian and is committed to working in genuine partnership with our local community to promote an awareness, understanding and mutual respect between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people. Delta’s stories have been handed down from her mother and her aunties.

Come, walk with Delta along the footsteps of her ancestors to not only see Country, but feel Country through her eyes.
