You will sample different bush foods and find out about their seasonal importance to the diet of the local Aboriginal people as well as learning how they hunted for kangaroo, honey ants and witchetty grubs.
You will have the opportunity to meet the local reptiles and appreciate the extraordinary fauna of Central Australia.
Your guide then returns you to your accommodation at Ayers Rock Resort.
The guides son was very badly behaved?! I was very surprised. He was trying to eat all of the food and snatching things off other people?!? It seemed to take the focus away from the trip. It would have been good to have had a print off of what plants/bush food we might see on the walk round...as the guide only pointed things out to us...which we then had to try and remember when we got to late taste the foods. I enjoyed learning about how they live off the land though
it was not worth the money that we paid. All we seen was two holes in the ground and the young girl we had tried her best to show us four trees and show us seed and nuts that she said that you can buy at IGA
we did not have a aboriginal host. And we were not told about life in the desert she told us to go for a walk till she setup . We thought that bush tucker was more than just seeds and nuts
