Bushtucker and Dreaming Stories
on an Outback Discovery Tour.

Your guide will pick you up or meet you at an arranged location. After a short drive to an outback destination, we begin with an informative bushwalk where you will learn how to recognise the tracks of local wildlife including kangaroos, emus, goanna or dingoes. We’ll stop to gather bushtucker and learn about medicine plants and their traditional uses. Some of these ancient medicine plants are today used in modern medicines and pharamaceuticals. Your guide will share with you the Wongutha names of places, animals and plants.
