The traditional food of the ancient Australian Aboriginal culture is affectionately called ‘Bush Tucker’ or ‘Bushfood’. For the indigenous Australians, bush tucker was not just a source of sustenance, it was also the basis for their medicine and was used in local religious ceremonies.
Check out our “Indigenous Insider’s Guide to Bush Tucker” infographic.
We’ve got a few recipe ideas that you might like to try in your campervan kitchen and a helpful guide letting you know where you can experience and sample delicious bushfood in and around Australia with some of the country’s best Aboriginal tourism experiences.
Be a little bit daring and try a ‘witchetty grub’ that has a nutty flavour or take the less wild option and go for a ‘riberry’ – with a taste a bit like cloves it’s great for sauces, jams and syrups – you could whip something up for the barbie.
