YOUR EXPERIENCE PROVIDER
Join Delta Kay, a local Arakwal woman, on a two-hour bush tucker walk of discovery in the Byron Bay region of New South Wales. Learn about the incredibly diverse range of edible fruits, roots, nuts, seeds and leaves growing naturally in the Australian bush. As you walk Delta will teach you how to identify what’s good to eat and what’s not. You’ll also have the opportunity to taste a variety of bush tucker along the way. Delta has lived on Country all of her life and offers a wealth of knowledge on local bush tucker, Arakwal culture and Country. Finding bush tucker takes special knowledge that develops from living close to nature and on Country.
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.
Afterwards enjoy some local tea and coffee and cookies.
