It is known that aborigines inhabited Australia from between 50,000 & 55,000 years ago, probably around Darwin and Lake Mungo, NSW. Between 1940 & 1955, a Day of Mourning or Aborigines’ Day was held as a celebration of aboriginal culture. Now NAIDOC WEEK is held not only by indigenous people but by people from all walks of life. It celebrates the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People.

We will learn how to propagate, grow and use bush foods. We will taste a variety of foods and even have the opportunity to buy some plants. Please advise if you require gluten free.

Bring or buy lunch to enjoy by the Bayside then we can explore the Redcliffe Botanical Gardens only a short drive away. It contains a wide variety of plants, some of local origin.

Look forward to your company and bring your friends.
