A note on safety: While we aim to provide accurate information in all our articles, particularly our bush tucker articles, it is important for you to do your own research and take care when eating or using potentially harmful plants or fruits. There are many species of bush tucker which look very similar to toxic plants, so it's extremely important to be aware of all varieties and be able to identify the variety you have before eating or using it.

What You Will Find in Our Australian Bush Tucker Articles

Bush Tucker is a native traditional way of eating that all Australians have grown up with in some form or another. Whether its a small introduction to bush tucker on a school excursion, or embracing bush tucker in your everyday life, we all have a lot to gain from this important aspect of living of our Traditional Owners of the land that we now call Australia.

Bush Tucker is a term which simply refers to native food, or bush food. It has traditionally been the main source of nutrition and medicine for Indigenous Australians for over sixty thousand years.

Although a large part of bush tucker consists of animals such as Kangaroo, Emu, Crab and more, we focus on the flora aspect of native Australian food and medicine.

There are many varieties of native edible plants that you can grown in your garden, and we aim to provide information to help Australians embrace Bush Tucker in all it's glory. From native Australian plant profiles and how to grow guides, to foraging and sustainability information, bush tucker recipes and learning about different landscapes throughout Australia.
