Come and celebrate the Big Scrub Rainforest Day with a special bush tucker tour guided by Arakwal Bundjalung woman Delta Kay. The tour will take place on Thursday 10th and Friday 11th March, from 4pm to 6pm at Bangalow Parklands (Deacon St, Bangalow) and bookings are essential.
During the tour, Delta will take guests along the stunning Byron Creek, located within Bangalow Parklands. Once an old grazing land, thankfully the Anglican church in partnership with Bangalow Land and Rivercare Group have regenerated this area with hundreds of plant species that are native to the Big Scrub Rainforest.
Delta will point out a variety of these edible bush tucker plants, as well as plants used for natural medicine, jewellery, fibre, tools and weapons. She will speak about the importance of The Big Scrub to her people and share traditional stories that have been passed down to her from her ancestors.
In addition to the tour, Playing with Fire Native Foods will have a stall set up selling a selection of native plants, bush tucker foods and products!
We offer a free pick-up and drop-off services for guests within 6km of the Byron Bay CBD. If you would like to use this service, please provide your pick-up address when you make your booking. Alternatively, if you provide your own transport, you will find us at Bangalow Parklands at 4pm (see on map below).
