Traditional Bush Foods

Bush-Tucker-In-Hand-450Traditional bush foods are very important to the bush aboriginal people.

As the diet of the aboriginal people changes with the seasons, so do the tour activities. Bush food collection is a major part of this tour and guests are encouraged to participate. We gather all kinds of foods such as turtles, snakes, grubs, fruits, yams, various native tubers, bulbs and corms etc. It's a very hands-on experience in a small group.

Our guide is a traditional bush aboriginal and a bush tucker expert.

Daily campfire cooking at sunset can include any of the foods mentioned above and magpie geese, buffalo and other new Top End tastes. Served together with the outback favourites: billy tea and damper.

There are many plants and animals utilised by aboriginal people which will amaze you. Detailed interpretation of the natural and cultural values of Kakadu and the Top End give you a much better understanding of your surroundings.
