Plants were utilised in many ways such as food, seasoning, herbal drinks and medicines
used to treat common ailments. They were also used for dyes, cleaning,
clothing, crafting, building shelters, weapons and much more. These techniques
and knowledge about our native flora and fauna have been passed down for
generations by the legal custodians of this land, the Kalkatungu (Kalkadoon) people, as well as
other indigenous tribes such as the Gangalida, Yanuwa, and Garrawa who’s people
have lived and thrived in this harsh outback country for over 65, 000 years.
Your Bush Tucker experience includes a guided visit to the neighboring Fish Hatchery where you can get up close and personal with our native fish in the viewing tanks while learning about the different species and their connection to Aboriginal culture and history.
The tour will also include a short guided informational session through the Mount Isa history museum to not only admire some beautiful Aboriginal artwork and artifacts, but to understand their meaning and historical importance.
