Booked the bush tucker walk with Kitana,
We Arrived and were greeted by Kitana herself and had a quick chat about the walk and what to expect.
The walk itself was relaxed and informative. Tasting bush foods along the way with explanations from Kitana about traditional uses, food, medicine and history. Kitana was fantastic, an enthusiastic communicator with plenty of terrific knowledge who left enough space and time for questions.
And then came the food box, on completion of the walk. Wow, wallaby cabana, pickles, humus, relish, seed encrusted brie, olives and home made bread. Yum!
All cooked and prepared by Kitana herself to showcase the flavours we had just learnt about.
Excellent,
Thank you Kitana.

For a sustainable future

Aboriginal people are the oldest living civilisation in the world, who have thrived as a community since time began. We are the traditional owners of the land and the ongoing custodians.

This means that we protected our land, we would take only take what was needed without compromising the resources for future generations.

This inspired us to aim to be 100% sustainable.
