Try this bush food experience to taste bush food
You can now join the passionate First Nation's guides to learn all about native Australian plants and animals. You will hear how they have inspired the modern sought after food and our palate. You will hear all about using Australian bush foods with everyday ingredients.

You will be able to feel, see, smell and learn all about how plants in the garden have been used and continue to be used to make meals. You will then be able to have a taste of delicious indigenous inspired food. This will all be developed in partnership with First Nation's trainee chefs from Charcoal Lane Social Enterprise Restaurant and training provider William Angliss Institute.

Have you ever wondered how native Australian plants play a part in our food chain? You can awaken your senses and hear all about the delights of bush foods and interesting stories on a guided walk with a passionate First Nations guide.

These First Nations people have a thriving culture and a huge connection to plants. You will learn exactly how plants within the gardens have been traditionally used and continue to be used around the world today.
