Overview

Once, there were over 5,000 edible plants in Australia.  These foods provided nutrition and medicine to one of the oldest races on Earth for over 50,000 years, the Indigenous Australians.

The Australian local spices, herbs and fruits are so rare in modern cuisine but pack so much flavor and nutrition. Its a new age of cuisine with endless possibilities.

On this tour, you will be guided by Julie Merlet, Nutritionist and owner of Natif -an Australian company which focuses on native bush foods and supporting the Indigenous Australians.

Experience the aromas and flavors of Australian Native fruits, herbs and spices.
Learn about ‘how to use’ them and their ‘health benefits’, where they grow naturally around Australia and take some home to use.

Enjoy fine dinning at Charcoal Lane Melbourne, indulge in their food, culture and friendly service. Why not try there famous Chargrilled kangaroo sirloin, red rice, sandalwood nut, crispy kale, riberry salad, orange,
quandong + chilli sauce.

We acknowledge the Aboriginal people of Australia for being the traditional custodians of this land. We pay our respects to their elders, past, and present, who have cared for this land for thousands of years. We thank them and others for sharing their fountain of knowledge about native foods of Australia.
