Get a taste of bush tucker at the Red Centre
Thursday, 18th May, 2017
YOU can now taste native Australia thanks to the new Bush Tucker Journeys launched at Ayres Rock Resort.
Celebrating Indigenous food and culture, the program offers guests with a wide range of bush food experiences including daily sessions on native Australian ingredients, ancient food preparation techniques and modern ways they can be used - all while guests make their own wattle seed shortbread.
The menus of the resort's 10 restaurants have also been revamped to include flavours celebrating the bush, from the humble croc-dog at Outback Pioneer's BBQ Bar to the perfectly succulent Indigenous herb crusted steak at Desert Gardens Hotel's more sophisticated Arnguli restaurant.
The ancient flavours take centre stage at each of Uluru's under the night sky dining experiences.
Guests can taste dukkah seared kangaroo loin on quandong cous cous with native mint yoghurt at the magical A Night at Field of Light or try house-smoked crocodile on mini dampers with desert lime preserve at the award-winning Sounds of Silence.
"Located in the spiritual heart of Australia, and home to the world's oldest living culture, this is arguably the best place in Australia to experience its unique and rich native flavours", said Andrew Williams, Voyages executive officer.
