Tuck in to Bush Tucker


Imagine growing and eating your own bush tucker produce!


The only Bush Tucker course offered by distance education - Learn about identifying, growing and using Australian indigenous plants for food
There are many Australian plants that are edible, and even some that are in very high demand as foods throughout the world.  The Aborigines lived off the land before white civilization came to Australia. Plants contributed significantly to their diet.


This fascinating course examines growing and harvesting many bush tucker foods:


·      Nuts and seeds (eg. Acacia, Macadamia, bunya nuts)

·      Drinks (eg. hot teas, infusions of nectar laden flowers, fruit juices)

·      Flavourings (eg. lemon scented myrtle)

·      Berries (eg. Astroloma, some Solanum species)

·      Fruits (eg. quandong, Ficus macrophylla, Syzygium)

·      Vegetables

·      Wattle seeds ground to produce ‘flour’

·      Plant roots ground to produce a paste or flour.
